Hell's Angels: The Strange and Terrible Saga of the Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs is a book written by counterculture icon Hunter S. Thompson, first published in 1966 by Random House.
It was widely lauded for its up-close and uncompromising look at the Hells Angels motorcycle club, during a time when the gang was highly feared and accused of numerous criminal activities. The New York Times described Thompson's portrayal as "a world most of us would never dare encounter."
It was Thompson's first published book and his first attempt at a nonfiction novel.

People keep mentioning Richard Preston's "The Hot Zone" when they're talking about Ebola, so I decided to check it out. I'm almost done with it, and wow... amazing book, great work, lots of research and he writes well... but also terrifying, considering our current situation.
