Publisher's Summary

Learn about the Spanish Flu, understand the preventive measures to fight it, come together as a community, and deliver a concerted response

Are you interested in learning about the worst pandemic to have occurred in modern history?

Do you need to know how to be prepared to deal with the current pandemic and any possible future ones?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, keep listening.

The Spanish Flu was the worst disaster to have occurred in modern history. It began to erupt in 1918 and spread to become an epidemic affecting communities. As it was also a time of war, the epidemic became a pandemic because of the travelling soldiers who unknowingly became the carriers of the deadly virus. 

Why is it important for us to know about the Spanish Flu? Historic context is invaluable and it is true of this pandemic. If we have a good understanding of it, we can be better prepared to deal with the current pandemic that is affecting our communities and ones that may arise in the future. This book is a great source of knowledge as it clearly narrates how the virus came about, how it spread, and how it was countered. 

In this eye-opening book, here is what else you’ll learn:

  • A brief history of the pandemics around the globe, including the Spanish Flu
  • What were the origins of the Spanish Flu and where did it erupt from?
  • How were countries affected as a result of the spread of the deadly virus
  • How the virus spread in waves, how the society was affected by it, and what measures were taken by medical communities
  • Why entire societies and communities were cut off from each other because of the pandemic, and what preventive measures were taken to curb its spread
  • Why the second wave of the Spanish Flu was especially deadly, and how its spread was exacerbated 
  • How the virus was countered with each successive wave of mutation, and how it was brought under control 
  • A history of why virus pandemics spread and what are some of the most effective ways to deal with them so as to slow their spread

Times call for us to continually renew our understanding of history so we can learn and be better prepared to address any present or future eventuality. The Spanish Flu is not any different and is the closest example in relation to the present virus pandemic. The more we study the Spanish Flu, the more we can recognize patterns into what role we should play as citizens to help curb the deadly spread. This book is timely and extremely useful in making us aware that we should take whatever precaution necessary to ensure a safe outcome for our families and communities.

Boring struggled to finish

Narrator was good. Story was dull. Should have been exciting considering what's happening now, but it wasn't.

Insights are unique and turn me perceive deeply

This is an excellent work. I can be truly satisfied with the purchase I made. This book tells the most important details of the Spanish flu. I was impressed by the fluidity with which he described the various problems there were, without getting bored or continuing to repeat the same topics as some other books do. I recommend it.
