Throwback Thursday – Memorable Book That Starts With the Letter ‘K’

killer germs
For this throwback Thursday, I’m picking a memorable book that starts with the letter ‘K’.

This week I’m picking Killer Germs: Microbes and Diseases That Threaten Humanity by Barry E. and David J. Zimmerman. I read this book in 2016 and thought it was fascinating. I’m not germaphobic, but there’s something utterly terrifying about invisible cells that can kill you. There’s also a chapter on bioterrorism (as if the normal killer germ talk isn’t enough to keep you up at night).

If you enjoy non-fiction of the health and wellness nature, I recommend you check out this book!

Description (From Goodreads): What disease, known as “the White Death” has killed 2 billion people, and counting?

What fatal disease lurks undetected in air conditioners and shower heads, waiting to become airborne?

How lethal is the Ebola virus, and will there ever be a cure for it?

How do you catch flesh-eating bacteria?

Killer Germs takes readers on a fascinating (sometimes horrifying) journey into the amazing world of viruses, bacteria, protozoa, fungi, and worms and explores the roles they have played in shaping the course of human history. From biblical plagues, to the AIDS crisis, to supergerms of the future, this updated and revised edition of the original covers the whole gamut of diseases that have threatened humanity since its origins.

It also includes a new chapter on the history of bioterrorism and the deplorable role it has played and is likely to play in the phenomenal diversity of diseases.

  1. I enjoy reading Christian non fiction. I’m currently reading Good Faith by David Kinnaman and Gabe Lyons. Some of my favorite authors are Kyle Idleman and Craig Groeschel. 🙂

  2. Sounds interesting! I am currently reading What The Future Looks Like edited by Jim Al-Khalili. I just read the chapter on medicine that discussed antibiotic resistance and the inevitability of a major pandemic! Scary stuff!
