In just a few spellbound reading sessions, I just finished "Spillover: Animal Infections and the Next Human Pandemic" by David Quammen.  Published back in 2012 but only coming to my attention now thanks to a CDC colleague who recommended it to me, it brilliantly recounts the stories of past zoonotic infectious diseases and accurately predicts the pandemic now underway--and the critical role of human behavior in its course. For a wealth of accurate medical information and perspective on how we got to COVID-19, I highly recommend this book!
