I Contain Multitudes

Product SKU: 9780062368591
Sales price: $27.99


This 2017-2018 CLSC selection by Ed Yong is a groundbreaking, wondrously informative and vastly entertaining examination of the most significant revolution in biology since Darwin.  I Contain Multitudes presents a “microbe’s-eye view” of the world that reveals a marvelous, radically re-conceived picture of life on earth.  Many people think of microbes as germs to be eradicated, but those that live with us — the microbiome — build our bodies, protect our health and shape our identities. Yong takes the reader on a grand tour through our microbial partners, changing both our view of nature and our sense of where we belong in it.

The CLSC presentation will take place Thursday, July 06, 2017 03:30pm at the Hall of Philosophy.
