Review by Trevor J. Adams
By Bob Gordon
For parents pondering what a post-COVID world will look like for their children, this book is a useful primer. Author Bob Gordon looks at our past—from the Black Death to 20th-century scourges like the Spanish flu and Ebola—to paint a picture of what awaits us in our post-pandemic world. With meticulous research, he considers the likely long-term impacts on education, travel, entertainment, retailers, and even the global balance of power. It’s not a light read (and given the subject, really couldn’t be), but it is a timely and richly informative one.
