The title of this book suggested to me that it might well be a self-congratulatory review by an organisation trying to claim credit for stopping a brief but frightening epidemic in its tracks. The fact that it was published by the World Health Organization also led me to believe that it might be a dry chronology of events and difficult for the average medical reader to penetrate. So I was pleasantly surprised to find that I enjoyed reading SARS and that facts are presented in a balanced manner.
