These creatures, which are largely invisible, inhabit every place on Earth where larger living creatures exist; they also inhabit many parts of the Earth where no other kinds of organism can survive. Microbes are everywhere.

Normally invisible, they are abundant in the air we breathe, in soil, in water, on our skin and hair, in our mouths and intestines, and on and in the food we eat.

They make the soil fertile; they clean up the environment; they change, often improve, our food; some protect us from less desirable microbes. Yet most people are.

Man and Microbes gives a fairly thorough review of the history of viruses, bacteria, and other microbes from the beginning of mankind to present day (well, almost -- book was printed in ) It is fascinating to read the progression of diseases, how microbes transmit from one host to another, and to think about what yet awaits us in this world/5(23).

Laymen always associate bacteria, microbes and germs with disease. Microbes seem to have a faintly alarming or disgusting aura, and the fact that by far the majority are nugatory or even beneficial is rarely understood.
