I Contain Multitudes: The Microbes Within Us and a Grander View of Life

by Ed Yong Author

This fascinating book explores the ecosystem that is the human bodies. Each of us is a walking, talking microbial colony. Trillions of organisms live in each of our bodies, existing symbiotically with us and helping us perform basic functions that we otherwise take for granted. Author Ed Yong explains why these tiny organisms matter so much in shaping how we live our lives, and in the process reshapes our entire understanding of what it means to be human. A deeply compelling read with the power to change the way you see the world and yourself.
