This book, written eloquently by a journalist and a scientist, highlights many lessons learned from the Ebola epidemic. The need for transparency, collaboration, and coordination among individual actors and agencies is more important than ever.--Sylvia Blyden, former Sierra Leone Minister of Social Welfare, Gender and Children's Affairs A heroic saga of human nature at its very best and worst. Sabeti and Salahi shed light on the fragmented and uncoordinated global response to the Ebola epidemic. All of us who respond to outbreaks now have a mandatory moral and cultural guide.--Joseph B. McCormick, coauthor of The Virus Hunters: Dispatches from the Frontline During epidemics and crises we see the best and worst of humanity. Outbreak Culture provides a thought-provoking account of the behaviors and ensuing politics that transpired throughout the Ebola outbreak of 2014-2016. This book offers important lessons, critically needed, to ensure that we are better prepared for the next epidemic.--Peter Piot, Director, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine A forceful and instructive account, as passionate and heartfelt as it is learned, Outbreak Culture reveals the experience most Ebola responders had but could not name. Through laboratory data and survey responses from hundreds of individuals directly involved in the world's largest public health endeavor, Sabeti and Salahi uncover competition, sabotage, fear, blame, and disorganization bordering on chaos, features that are seen in just about any lethal epidemic.--Paul Farmer, cofounder of Partners in Health
