In January 2020, as people started dying from a new virus in Wuhan, China, few really understood the magnitude of what was happening. Except, that is, a small group of scientific misfits who in their different ways had been obsessed all their lives with how viruses spread and replicated - and with why the governments and the institutions that were supposed to look after us, kept making the same mistakes time and again.

This group saw what nobody else did. A pandemic was coming. We weren't prepared.

The Premonition is the extraordinary story of a group who anticipated, traced and hunted the coronavirus; who understood the need to think differently, to learn from history, to question everything; and to do all of this fast, in order to act, to save lives, communities, society itself. It's a story about the workings of the human mind; about the failures and triumphs of human judgement and imagination. It's the story of how we got to now.

Over Michael Lewis

Michael Lewis (1960) opgeleid aan Princeton en de London School of Economics schreef met 'Blufpoker', over de mores van Wall Street, de financiële klassieker van de jaren tachtig. Sindsdien schreef hij nog veel meer narratieve non-fictie, zoals 'The Blind Side' en 'Moneyball'. Met 'The Big Short' keert hij terug naar het onderwerp van zijn eerste bestseller.
