Publisher's Summary

Read by Alex Berenson

The most important fact about the coronavirus pandemic that turned the world upside down in 2020 is that our response to it has been an epic overreaction driven by a disastrous confluence of public and private interests - all of them purporting to “follow the science”.

Since the lockdowns began, millions of Americans have relied on the reporting of Alex Berenson. Exposing the hysteria and manipulation behind the worst failure of public policy since World War I, this clear-eyed journalist has been a critical source of reason and truth.

The product of relentless investigation and research, Pandemia explains how an illness that many people will never even know they had became the occasion for economically ruinous lockdowns and the suppression of personal freedom on a previously unimaginable scale. Dispassionate, factual, and untainted by any agenda other than telling the truth, this is the account that pandemic-weary Americans desperately need.

Outstanding

The only reason you wouldn't love this book is because you can't handle the truth. Yes, the subject matter is complicated but Alex Berenson gives you evidence based facts that allow you to make sound decisions when your government is giving you propaganda to push a political or economic agenda. As a physician with 12 years of medical education and 30+ years of treating real patients, I feel it's important to know what is real and what is make believe. Unlike some other books on the subject, this book provides time lines and references so I can read the studies myself and not just depend on a summary from some other biased reporter. Medicine shouldn't need someone like Alex Berenson but we have become so political as censoring and manipulating data have become the norm. Follow the real science and make your own decisions. Berenson puts all the pieces together and shows us the big picture. As a political moderate and independent, I feel the book is very balanced. The only side he takes is the side of truth.

Tremendously useful information.

A truly useful book. For most who are aware of Mr. Berenson's writing concerning CoV-2 (politics, policies and public health) there will be very little which is new, although I found that having his arduous work in a single book format useful. Mr. Berenson's hard work deserves my purchasing this book.

2 star performance: Berenson's narration is fine but I found dozens of repeated words and phrases. This audio version needs serious re-editing.

First Version is buggy… but AWESOME!

Yes, there are multiple repeats as previous reviewers have noted. Alex just announced a revised version (11 minutes shorter!) will be available soon. Anyway, I’d prefer a rapid release over a perfect release. Thanks for the rapid release, Alex!

I agree with about 85-90% of what Alex reports here. There are a few areas I disagree with, but overall, he and I are in sync.

Other than the technical glitches in the early release, Alex does an excellent job narrating his book. At first, I thought there was something wrong with my iPhone… or the Audible app… or the files got corrupted. Reading other reviews, I’ve determined ‘The problem is not in your set’! Now, I enjoy the repeats! I typically say ‘You can say THAT again, Alex!’ when it happens.

Just the facts and a true story

The true story of our COVID-obsessed world backed up by facts and logic. It's a story no one wants to believe. Instead, much of our society wants to hide in fear and ignorance. Not a conspiracy theory, all backed up by easily verifiable facts unless you would rather just let someone else tell you what to believe and hand over your life, and your children's futures to those who gain power, riches, and influence by peddling endless panic.

The author has a great voice and a great narrative style. It would be so much more fun to listen to if this was all a nightmare from the past but Alex makes the best of our sorry situation anyway.

Alex Barenson is a REAL investigative journalist!!

Alex Berenson is what a REAL investigative journalist looks like, as far as I can tell. The guy does his homework. He’s relentless. He’s a brilliant critical thinker. He’s a hero in my book. We’d be in a bad place if we didn’t have courageous, thoughtful, bright, hard-working people like him among us. This book is very important for many reasons. Perhaps more than anything else, it’s valuable because it documents the history of many of the more important events. And so much has happened during this pandemic, that it’s easy to lose sight of the forest. If the mainstream media had journalists like Berenson, we could actually watch “the news” and learn about the world. Sadly, we’re a long way away from those days. It’s really gotten so biased that you have to dig and hunt around for legit intel on what’s going on in the world. Thank you sir!!!! Please don’t stop!!!! Keep grinding away at what you do!!! I trust you and look forward to your future contributions to society!! 🙏😀🙏

Author reads out the hard Facts.

The Truth will set you free. Knowing more about this virus will help everyone, even if the facts are different from the story we all heard from the likes of Fauci and Cuomo. Buy this book and disregard the repeated phrases in the edit.

Finally, a book that accurately reflects reality.

40 years as a physician, Covid has unnecessarily paniced many educated colleagues... unbelievable! Deal with it like adults and quit using it as a political wedge.

Pandemia is a great look at the pandemic through a skeptical journalist’s perspective. Well researched with lots of data from reputable sources.

Well researched, informative and uncensored

At a time of unprecedented censorship by so called mainstream journalists, Alex's Pandemia is a refreshing insight into the horrific failings of governments across the globe. A truly excellent piece that is concisely explained and supported with credible scientific research. Sadly, few independent writers like Alex remain.

Interesting book

Made out to be a conspiracy theorist for showing data. Conspiracy theorist is now just weaponised language to stop the critique of the power structure. 1984 is now.

Narrative a little slurred at times

Good read

Enjoyed this book. Didn’t really learn much as thankfully learned a lot from other sources this past year or so but still it gave confirmation to what I had learned. Amazed the extent of the media to silence critical thinking and even when commenting on facts from government sources that Twitter etc tried to silence him. Big tech and pharma have a lot to answer for. Do we have politicians that will fight for us and the truth, sadly no.

A well written inconvenient truth

A wise man once said, the books they want to burn are the ones I want to read.
An antidote to the torrents of illogic that are presented as facts on every platform.
This book calmly presents an other take on the Covid debate. Free from official North Korean style media presentation, unemotional and balanced. Read this, and make up your own mind.

Turning of the Tide

A well written, well researched and well needed book. This book I believe will be the watershed moment for many, providing the other 90% percent of the picture for these insane times, of which many have worked extremely hard to obscure or silence. This book gives hope that once again the truth will in fact prevail and that we cannot let any alternative have consideration.

A must read for everyone

This is a must read for everybody, regardless of your politics, regardless of your vaccination status, and regardless of what you already believe to be true about covid and our trusted institutions’ responses to it.
