Immune by Philipp Dettmer
A Journey into the Mysterious System That Keeps You Alive // Touching on our body's defenses, the types of adversaries we face (including a chapter on the coronavirus), and the grave consequences of immune malfunction, this book is a vital crash course in what is arguably, and increasingly, the most important system in the body.
Shutdown by Adam Tooze
How Covid Shook the World's Economy // By focusing on finance and business, Tooze sets the pandemic story in a frame that casts a sobering new light on how unprepared the world was to fight the crisis, and how deep the ruptures in our way of living and doing business are. The virus has attacked the economy with as much ferocity as it has our health, and there is no vaccine arriving to address that. Tooze's special gift is to show how social organization, political interests, and economic policy interact with devastating human consequences, from your local hospital to the World Bank.

Pump by Bill Schutt
