Reviews

Booklist "Fun facts are one attraction of Ben-Barak's work, another is the importance the author accords to what microbes do to us. Perhaps readers will become furious hand washers after learning about the culpability of viruses and bacteria in diseases; perhaps they'll be inspired by the possibilities of enlisting them to kill cancer or clean up pollution; certainly, they'll be better informed by Ben-Barak's entertaining approach." SEED "...dotted with pub-worthy facts (two to four pounds of human body weight is made up of microbes) and playful footnotes that make for an accessible and amusing look at the hidden world of ubiquitous microscopic creatures like bacteria, archaea, protists, and viruses. Woven into the humor is a bona fide crash course in parasitology, microbiology, and gene transfer..." Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Wonderfully informative and entertaining, Ben-Barak's latest is a brilliant read for both general readers and science buffs." BoingBoing.net "I enjoyed this lighthearted insider's guide to germs... I'd love to shrink down to microscopic size to see some of the odd lifeforms described in this book."
