I was going to correct you, because it's "We're f***ed"….. but….. I agree that we were f***ed, and are still f***ed. I'm surprised we're still around! XD So carry on.

Best book every written about the Flu

I think all doctors should read his book.

Mr. Barry is brilliant. He is speaking about important things, not just influenza, but INFLUENZA….the influences of power, of war and of social and economic crisis…how it all interrelates. I'm sharing it.

Michael Anderson says:

where r u getting your facts from and how reliable are they?

jonathan bowman says:

I just read this book, it was VERY good

CULAVE says:

In Europe the Spanish Influenza has largely been forgotten despite being one of the worst killers in world history. This may be because the bulk of WW1 was fought in Europe and therefore overshadowed it. In my country (the UK its estimated 250,000 died in the Spanish Flu- though British Great War fatalities were close to 1 million so I think the legacy of the Spanish Flu (which effected every country on earth) varies according to how much WW1 overshadowed the flu in different nations.
