Reviews

"Super-interesting... He just keeps imparting one surprising, fascinating insight after the next. I Contain Multitudes is science journalism at its best" -- Bill Gates
"[A] marvellous, thrilling and richly annotated book... I call it marvellous: everything about the microbial world is to be marvelled at. And it is a page-turner in a very old-fashioned sense. All life is here, and death too, and sex and violence, including deviations of which you had never dreamed ... We have an inner life, in every sense, and are the richer for it: richer still for this witty and compelling book." -- Tim Radford * Guardian *
"Beyond fascinating. An amazing book. It'll change the way you think about the world. It'll change who you think you are." -- Helen Macdonald, author of H is for Hawk
"Momentous ... an essential read" -- Bryan Appleyard * Sunday Times *
"I Contain Multitudes makes the importance of popularising science...sparklingly clear... From his vibrant introduction to his witty endnotes, Yong's expertise and narration hold no less wonder than a sacred text." -- Kate Womersley * Spectator *
