5.0 out of 5 stars A rare winner 18 April 2000
By Moselio Schaechter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Rarely, oh so rarely has science been explained to the public with such zestful clarity. Not since Paul de Kruif's "Microbe Hunters" has anyone produced as exciting an exposition of how microbes and humans interact. The writers flavor the text with titillating examples, evocative metaphors, and thought-provoking questions. This book constitutes a passport to a whole wondrous realm, not just a single destination.
