Easy to read and good “layman’s” explanation of virus’s, proteins and how a cell lives and dies, and written in a fascinating “who done it” way with political cover up’s, plus hints on Alzheimer’s and other brain disorders.
Author is a renowned writer, with 5 honorary doctorates etc
He states, in the opening sentence of this book's chapter 4 "'Don''t read a science textbook if you want to get a sense of how science really works.'
If you want to understand both the science and the impact of diseases like kuru, mad cow disease and chronic wasting disease, and wonder about other conditions like Lou Gehrig's Disease and maybe even Parkinson''s then this is a must read.
Hopefully, research will eventually enable a living animal (human) to eliminate these devastating molecules.

Unfortunately with the title including nothing about the topic - the word "Prion" occurring exactly zero times on the outside of the jacket - and the Amazon categories:
"Health, Fitness & Dieting > Psychology & Counseling"
"Science & Math"
giving little clue as well, I doubt many interested folks will find their way to this great book.
