There's more to the human body than meets the eye--trillions of invisible bacteria and other microbes, in fact. Stephen McLaughlin's personable narration provides a detailed and informative tour through the world of microbes, not only in our environment, but also in and on our bodies. The goal of this book is to provide insight into the complexity of microbial communities and how they interact with our bodies and the environment. This insight, the author believes, will give us tools to make more informed decisions about our health. The information is extensive, but Mclaughlin's deliberate pace and careful pauses--for example, for the recitation of genetic code and scientific terms--allows for comprehension. While the depth of the discussion threatens to become overwhelming, McLaughlin's relaxed tone and unrushed pace bring a sense of calm intrigue, and even humor, to the information that makes it accessible even to non-scientists.
