Dr. Bonnie Henry, a Canadian public health physician, has written a book that's informative, interesting, and very readable. I've read, or tried to read, many books about microbes, and this is one I'd recommend to anyone with a similar interest. The author makes facts about bacteria, viruses, and parasites quite clear without using esoteric terms that can numb your brain. With references to Canadian incidents and doctors and those extra "u"s in the -or words, it's obvious the author is Canadian. For me it adds a certain balance and interest to the book.
Bottom line - This is an incredibly affordable book still pertinent and enjoyable.
