An engrossing, lively history of a fearsome and misunderstood virus that binds man and dog
The most fatal virus known to science, rabies—a disease that spreads avidly from animals to humans—kills nearly one hundred percent of its victims once the infection takes root in the brain. In this critically acclaimed exploration, journalist Bill Wasik and veterinarian Monica Murphy chart four thousand years of the history, science, and cultural mythology of rabies. From Greek myths to zombie flicks, from the laboratory heroics of Louis Pasteur to the contemporary search for a lifesaving treatment, Rabid is a fresh and often wildly entertaining look at one of humankind’s oldest and most fearsome foes.

Bill Wasik is a senior editor at Wired and was formerly a senior editor at Harper’s.
Monica Murphy, Wasik’s wife, is a veterinarian. They live in Oakland, California.
