Publisher's Summary

Get the summary of John M. Barry's The Great Influenza

Sample key takeaways from part one:  

  1. Throughout history, while relatively continuous and steady progress was being made in most areas of science, the medical field seemed to suffer from extremely slow advancement. This may be due to researchers’ tendency to focus on observation and logic rather than hands-on exploration of nature and living bodies. 
  2. The common consensus that biology and nature were chaotic and, thus, impossible to study was a big factor in preventing progress. 
  3. It wasn’t until the 19th century that considerable progress started being made in medicine as scientists embraced measurement, dissection, and record-keeping. The advancement was mainly in Europe, while the United States was behind.

Ok for what it is

Very short and to the point - well laid out and easy to absorb. Having not read the full book, which sounds painfully detailed, its a little tough to compare but i suspect i made the right choice b/t the two.

Very helpful to understand!

Incredible and so helpful for me to better understand the complex topics of the book it is summarizing.
