It must have been a groundbreaking book when it first came out in the s.

Illustrates how science is always gaining in knowledge and that it’s never done. In some ways that is a good thing. I am embarking in middle life a career shift into science from business, so he thought it was good primer and inspiration.

The writing was different. I’ve read this book when I was 16 and later when I was The introduction to the newest edition, published in the s, didn’t try to bring us completely up-to-date- on microbiology, which would have been impossible.

Want to Read saving…. It is fantastic history story telling long before “Horrible Histories” reinvented the genre. Crazy small stuff that affects our ability to survive on earth. Getting to know the characters that set a foundation for future microbe hunters is an enjoyable and surprisingly humorous read. No se como describirlo pero este libro se ha convertido en algo especial para mi, me encanta como esta redactado y creo que llego a mi vida en un momento bueno y bonito.


I think I’d give him 4 if it was intentional. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. I first read this as a ten-year old, but my pleasure in it has hardly diminished in adulthood.

I recommend this book to anyone who has any remote interest in science and medicine OR when we forget and don’t save history or read history, this too is highlighted when science must start again. The book is divided into chapters based on each major character.

As a lifetime scientist who was first tempted to pursue my career when I read this book, I am glad it can still remind me that I made the right choice. Jan 01, Chuchiqo rated it it was amazing. More than that, I have re-read this volume countless times, including days when it was not in my plans, but I made the error of taking it off the shelf and being caught up in de Kruif’s almost childlike This book belongs in every reader’s education.

These early pioneers in microbe hunting, and those that followed, have micdobios more to relieve gratuitous human suffering than any to walk the earth before them. I solute them and their tireless, self sacrificing and endless scientific work to discover the workings of the microbe. After reading it inI decided this is how I wanted to spend my life. This is again why I think kuif should be on every school curriculum before students move on to dry, more formal books.


I guess it shaped my life. He acts as if Paul Ehrlich did almost nothing, but suggest weird ideas and secure money and means. I can’t understand why it is not on every school reading list.

It is not quite a thriller, but does read like a fiction. Excellent book, brought to my attention by my father who remembered it from his childhood days. The achievements of each person are clearly articulated and linked across time so that you get the appreciation of how modern scientists are always standing on shoulders of those before.

Many believe the characters in the novel represent people known to De Kruif, with Martin Arrowsmith a physician, unlike de Kruif possibly representing himself. I wish i had travel it before 2year of mbbs! Anthrax, plague, malaria, yellow fever, tuberculosis, cholera and many other disease causing paaul were identified. The book discusses the giants of germ theory and does so in a fe that makes these scientists appr This book is what introduced me to the world of medical research.
