The Ghost Map: The Story of Londom’s Most Terrifying Epidemic

It is a fascinating story about the famous cholera epidemic in 1850’s London. The book describes the devastating effects this disease had on the city, the way pathogenic outbreaks were understood in those times and how Dr. John Snow pioneered the use of statistics to find the causes of the disease. I recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries, history, statistics, or wants to understand why pathogenic outbreaks can be so deadly if misunderstood.
