also a good book to read about i love it. This book was a tiring and arduous read for me! It required my full energy, a dictionary, and a paper and pen to take effective notes, so that I can fully understand this book! Although some chapters may be quite boring and confusing, this book is without a doubt well written. The author, Paul De Kruif, did a splendid job of exemplifying how 12 scientists/microbe hunters contributed to the world of science today. Despite how many of these 12 scientists are overlooked and forgotten by a plethora of people, Paul De Kruif wrote the book in a way in which you'll be thanking the 12 men for their innovative minds that have cure much of society's deadly diseases. Readers would be in awe at the intellectual ways in which these 12 men conducted experiments to endeavor to find a cure. I myself was amazed by how Paul De Kruif had so much information and knowledge about each of these 12 men, when they lived in the old days. However, I would not recommend for you to read this book, unless you're advance in reading or want to pursue a science career. The thing that I took away from this book is that with each aspect of modern science, there is a person in the past who contributed to it, and they should be thanked.
