Description-
  • A thrilling historical account of the worst cholera outbreak in Victorian London-and a brilliant exploration of how Dr. John Snow's solution revolutionized the way we think about disease, cities, science, and the modern world. The Ghost Map is an endlessly compelling and utterly gripping account of that London summer of 1854, from the microbial level to the macrourban-theory level-including, most important, the human level.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine Here is one of those audiobooks in which all the ingredients come together to create a first-rate listen. To begin with, it's a gripping story. Johnson's narrative of the 1854 cholera epidemic in London is humanized by his portrayal of the people who suffered through it, including the intrepid doctor, John Snow, who ultimately traced the outbreak to contaminated water. Johnson is also a big thinker, and his argument about how disease has affected the future of urban living adds a second layer of intrigue. Finally, the threads of this Victorian detective story are pulled together by the expert narration of Alan Sklar, whose voice draws you into the tale and holds you to the end. D.B.
