- The Great Influenza: The Story of the Deadliest Pandemic in History, John M. Barry (hardback, paperback). From the NOS perspective, this book presents a history of the 1918 influenza pandemic in a manner suitable for late middle school through high school. Barry traces the history of the outbreak back to the index case, and charts the spread around the planet. The key players are personalized and their efforts to find a cure demonstrate perseverance, frustration, competing views, proposing new theories, etc. — in all a real-life summation of a critical scientific endeavor that demonstrates that knowledge can come from failure.
