Contemporary Culture • 15.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

If sheltering in place has given you more time to listen to audiobooks, this one may scare you into never leaving the house. Greger has a highly idiosyncratic style: He speeds up and slows down mid-sentence, with the cadences of a casual conversation rather than a formal reading. Once you get used to this, Greger draws you in with this genuinely frightening but rigorously scientific account of how a truly catastrophic flu pandemic could make COVID-19 look like the sniffles. Despite the title, he devotes much more time to describing the likely cause of the scourge (domestic fowl), though he also offers practical advice on how to prepare for it. Start stocking the pantry now. D.B. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2020]
