Panic in Level 4: Cannibals, Killer Viruses, and Other Journeys to the Edge of Science - Richard Preston A collection of Richard Preston's New Yorker articles from 1992 through 2007. While I appreciated the introduction and some insight into Mr. Preston's writing, the articles contain some duplicated information that has not been edited out. Editing, or an article introduction for each, would have helped.

For the older articles, an "update" or "where are they now" would have been appreciated. No dating of the original articles are given - I found that information here:
