Thoughts:

Fauci: Expect the Unexpected by Anthony Fauci is not a political book, and furthermore, is not a biography. It’s a very short book which will probably take you an hour to read. Apparently, there’s some documentary out there which is where these quotes and anecdotes were pulled from.

The book is what it is, it’s nothing special, just a nice book with some good advice and interesting stories. I especially enjoyed the one about Bono, U2’s lead vocalist, coming to visit.

The book follows Dr. Fauci from his childhood in Brooklyn, where his intellect was recognized and got him into the prestigious Regis High School. Following his graduation from Cornell Medical School (first in his class), and through his public service career.

The National Geographic editors chose ten guiding principals in the life of Dr. Fauci. These are good guidelines, I related more to Colin Powell’s rules, but I can certainly say that Dr. Fauci’s are good as well.

I was dismayed to read many of the reviews who decided to trash the book based on their political ideology. I thought that we, book lovers, were better than that, as well as surprised how quickly otherwise intelligent people buy into smear campaigns and propaganda.
