Eddie Holmes reviews Peter Doherty’s new book “Pandemics”

I love this because it involves two fantastic Australian-based infectious disease researchers, and is published in PLoS Biology. Yay PLoS!

The wonderful Eddie Holmes, who recently moved to the University of Sydney in Australia, has written a great review of Nobel prize winner Peter Doherty’s latest book, “Pandemics – what everyone needs to know”. Peter Doherty is of course Australian, and has been based at the University of Melbourne for the last few years… and just last week has moved into the brand new building that bears his name – the Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity. He has written many great books, including the fabulous “Beginner’s Guide to Winning the Nobel Prize: Advice for Young Scientists”


Anyway, back to the review. As always, Eddie’s review is clear and interesting, and makes me really want to read the book!


If like me, you don’t have time to read it now, I also found this video of Peter Doherty talking about the book, over on BookTV which I am going to listen to while doing some boring admin tasks this afternoon…
