#12Bookin2022 I reread this one with my students for my upper level Microbiology course. It is an amazing read and as a microbiologist, I feel it is the most excessive read that explains the importance of bacteria. So this is my December pick! And that rounds out my 2022! Thanks @Andrew65 Great way to reflect on the year.

SamAnne I loved this one! More than his current one An Immense World. 1mo
Daisey I loved this one and need to reread/relisten! 1mo
Andrew65 Looks good. Thanks for playing along, I agree, it has been a great way to review the Reading year. 1mo

Listened to this on audio after hearing @MicrobeMom give a rave review- it took me 3 months to finish- not because it was bad- because it was great! And I only listened when I could really pay attention (hard because I‘m usually multitasking when doing audio) - I am hopeful and fascinated by the study of microbes and human health- there is so much to discover and apply! I also highly recommend this to science/non fiction lovers.

MicrobeMom So glad you enjoyed it. Still my reread with my students! Hopefully they like it as much as you did! ♥️♥️ 2mo

I was really looking forward to this one. But maybe my hoes were too high and that made me not like it as well. I really wanted it to be all about all the stuff in our bodies. But there was too much about other things.

Getting a little work reading in on this beautiful day before it gets too hot! Then I will climb back into my air conditioned hole in my house! 😂😂

Informative book with a lot of references. Wish it had more of a plan for improving one‘s own micro biome.

This was a stunning book in both its complexity and simplicity. I‘ve always loved Biology and this book made me fall in love with it all over again. And I have hope for the advances we‘ve had in microbial science. A fascinating read!!!

DrexEdit Ooooo! I really want to read this one! Ed Yong edited this years Best American Science and Nature Writing which I really enjoyed! 12mo

This book is very unique because it present scientific knowledge in a narrative format; and even does so without being an absolute snooze fest. There are definitely instances of concepts being repeated, but truthfully, this is one of the best scientific books I‘ve ever read.

If you want to learn more about microbes, microbiomes, and their impacts on the world, this is the book for you.

violabrain I absolutely loved this book! Ed Yong is one of my favorite science writers! 1y
LMAN8BSA @violabrain There‘s definitely a reason he‘s won so many awards! 1y
