Microcosm in the Guardian, Columbia Journalism Review

The Guardian has just reviewed Microcosm: E. coli and the New Science of Life:

“This is a thought-provoking book that wrenches us from our human-centred perspective and gives us a guide to life through the chemical-sensing molecules of a species that was here long before we were, and which will certainly outlive us.”

The full review is here.

The Columbia Journalism Review wants you to read it too…

“It is a story of discovery that illuminates a microscopic and alien world and explains how it has helped guide the course of human history. Anybody that picks up a copy will find that Zimmer has produced a book not just about E. coli, but about microbiology and evolution itself.”
