Publisher's Summary

You are about to discover stuff you didn’t know about the Spanish Flu, to develop an above average understanding of one of the worst pandemics in human history and how you can use that knowledge to understand and survive the current one!

With an estimated 50 million people having succumbed to the Spanish Flu of 1918, it is no wonder that with the current pandemic in full swing, references to the Spanish Flu have become a lot more common.

But ask anyone to talk about the Spanish Flu for five minutes and they will run out of things to talk about! Yes, while many people refer to the Spanish Flu casually, very few people actually have done any research to understand such things like how it actually started, how it was transmitted, its signs and symptoms, how people died, which parts of the world were most affected and much more.

Perhaps that explains your curiosity to want to know all about the Spanish Flu in detail. By virtue that you are reading this, you probably have all manner of questions going through your mind:

How did the people of the day deal with the widespread infection?

What treatment measures were being used to help patients?

How does it compare with the current pandemic?

What was the economic and social impact of the Spanish Flu?

How did the Spanish Flu stop being a problem?

If so, you came to the right place because this audiobook will ensure you get all the answers to these and many more questions to understand the ins and outs of the Spanish flu, viruses, safety precautions against serious outbreaks and the current one.

The narration is so annoying that it is difficult to listen

The narration in this audiobook is so annoying that it completely distracts from the content. It's is too slow, has no context and sounds automated.
I would suggest that the content be rerecorded, as this is so bad that I am going to return it.

Reasonable story ruined by poor audio narration

This is a reasonable account of the 1918 flu pandemic. It was a little confusing being written by Richard Fauci, but I could not find any relation to the current Tony Fauci in the news. This would have been helpful context, are they related?
The audio narration was dreadful! It was hard to listen to and very difficult audio; I had to persevere to get through it, although I know this isn't fascinating material.
