Seth Mnookin

Seth Mnookin is the author of The Panic Virus: A True Story of Medicine, Science, and Fear, which The Wall Street Journal said "should be required reading at every medical school in the world." He is also the author of the 2006 New York Times-bestseller Feeding the Monster: How Money, Smarts, and Nerve Took a Team to the Top, about the Boston Red Sox. Since 2005, Seth has been a contributing editor at Vanity Fair. He graduated from Harvard College in 1994 with a degree in History and Science, and was a 2004 Joan Shorenstein Fellow at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.
