Narrator Charlie Anson brings out the dry humor in British science journalist Ed Yong's fascinating and accessible treatise on the world of microbes. Anson also does admirably pronouncing the many scientific names and words, and his smooth and lively delivery helps keep listeners from getting bogged down. Yong's audiobook goes well beyond the headlines about the "microbiome," profiling scientists and diving deep into their latest research about these tiny microorganisms and the sometimes helpful, sometimes harmful roles they play. Indeed, perhaps what Yong and Anson communicate most effectively is the palpable joy of discovery and an appreciation for the secret and intricate workings of our world, which we're still only beginning to understand.
