The Next Pandemic - Lessons from History John Barry’s PrepTalk offers lessons learned from the 1918 and 2009 influenza pandemics. He provides guidance on what emergency managers can do to work with public health and elected officials to implement measures that can save lives. Barry reminds us that “the boss is the virus. We have no way of knowing if the next [pandemic] will be exceedingly mild, or like 1918, or worse.” The National Academy of Sciences named his book, The Great Influenza: The Story of the Deadliest Pandemic in History, a “best book” in the field of science/medicine.
