Overview

What does the word 'microbe' make you think of? For some, it evokes food poisoning, or maybe the infamous Coronavirus-19. They often have a very negative connotation.

However, 'microbes' aren't all bad - and as a matter of fact, they're all around. Many of them have a symbiotic relationship with us and are essential to our life.

In I Contain Multitudes: The Microbes Within Us and a Grander View of Life, Ed Yong dives deep into the riveting microscopic world of microbes. With his insight, you'll understand their importance, their role when it comes to maintaining our health and ecosystem, and how to differentiate the good from the bad.
