Summary, etc.:
"CNN chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta, MD, offers an accessible, data-packed answer to our biggest questions about Covid-19: What have we learned about this pandemic and how can we prepare for--or prevent--the next one? As America's favorite frontline Covid-19 health journalist, Dr. Sanjay Gupta has barely left his primetime seat in his makeshift studio basement since the pandemic began (other than to perform brain surgery). He's had the insider of insider access to the drama's unfolding, including exclusive conversations with the world's top public health experts and behind-the-scenes scientists racing to find treatments and cures. And now he's sharing what he's learned in a book that will answer not only all our questions about what happened, but also about how our world will change in the years ahead, even once we're back to "normal." Gupta argues that we need to prepare for a new era where pandemics will be more frequent, and possibly even more deadly. As the doctor who's been holding America's hand through the crisis with compassion, clarity, and well-earned wisdom, he gives you the unvarnished story behind the pandemic, including insights about the novel virus's behavior, and offers practical tools to ready ourselves for what lies ahead. He answers critical questions: Can we stamp out the virus for good (and if not, how do we live with it)? Should we put our parents in a nursing home? Where should we live? What should we stockpile? What should we know before taking a trip? Does it make sense to spend more on health insurance to deal with any long-term effects? How do you decide when it's safe to go to a public pool or schedule elective surgery? What should Covid survivors know about protecting their future health? What if you become a long-hauler with chronic health challenges stemming? World War C will give you hope for the future along with real information that leaves you more resilient and secure."--Publisher's website.

An Outside magazine correspondent whose award-winning journalism has appeared in venues ranging from the Atlantic to Wired, Borrell draws on exclusive emails and insider emails to track the race to produce The First Shots to protect against COVID-19; look for an HBO limited series. In Deep Denial, multi-award-winning CNN anchor Cuomo reflects on the fault lines in American society revealed by the pandemic--from a hobbled public health care system to a failure to commit to equality and racial justice--and more personal thoughts on home and family after he contracted COVID-19 and kept reporting from his basement (150,000-copy first printing). CNN chief medical correspondent, who's also been in the thick of COVID-19 reporting, Gupta gives us World War C, answering major questions on how the pandemic unfolded and what happens next, e.g., can we obliterate the virus and, if not, how do we live with it? (250,000-copy first printing). The pandemic has shown us the crucial work done in our communities by E.R. Nurses, and the mega-best-selling Patterson joins forces with Walk in My Combat Boots coauthor Matt Eversmann and Edgar finalist Chris Mooney to reveal the extent of our indebtedness.

"Despite our twenty-first-century medicine, glitzy computer modeling, and pandemic planning, we weren't ready" for Covid-19, warns CNN's chief medical correspondent Gupta (Keep Sharp) in this hope-filled survey. Gupta summarizes what the world got wrong in its response and lays out what can be done better next time--missteps include mixed-messaging from officials about mask effectiveness, a "lack of truth telling among our leaders," and a failure to enforce social distancing soon enough. The American death toll from Covid could have been much less had the right steps been taken in time, Gupta contends, and that preventable aspect adds urgency to his prescriptions for next steps, usefully framed as the acronym P.R.O.O.F.--Plan ahead, Rethink and rewire risk in your brain, Optimize health, Organize family, and Fight for the future of us. This five-point plan urges readers and governments alike: countries should make significant investments in universal vaccines that fight all coronaviruses and take a more global approach to vaccinations that prioritizes those at risk, while individuals will learn about how nutrition and eating well can arm them against pandemics. Realistic but never doom-and-gloom, this lands as a refreshing look forward. Agent: Bob Barnett, Williams & Connolly. (Oct.)
