KIRKUS REVIEW

The ""your"" is heavily stressed in this very good discussion of microbes. Each chapter deals with a different variety of microbe--algae, protozoa, fungi, bacteria, viruses -- and is broken down into explanations of their structure, how and where they live, how they are studied, how they affect man, how they can be used, and how they can be overcome when harmful. A microscope is not a necessary concomitant to this book, but readers will feel encouraged to use one, and the book is interesting for students with or without a background in biology or chemistry. The author has done several excellent books on related subjects including You and Your Cells (1964).
