The only person it speaks about is him. I think I’d give him 4 if it was intentional.

Reading the book made me think about becoming something other than an astronomer or cosmologist. Even though Lewis was listed as the sole author, De Kruif’s contribution was significant, and he received 25 percent of the micorbios.

Paul Henry de Kruif was an Mruif microbiologist and author of Dutch descent. Despite this I can see why this book remains in print. THe author made these scientists real and flawed and eccentric without diminishing the impact of their work. Illustrates how science is always gaining in knowledge and that it’s never done.

I wish i had travel it before 2year of mbbs! Trivia About Microbe Hunters. Written in older style story micdobios, this gave an enlightening overview of the advances in the study of microbes over the centuries. It is a beautiful thing. Imagine comforting a grieving mother hysterical about her baby dying of diphtheria with a cure!

This was a “car book,” something I read out loud to my cazadoges as we travel distances, especially on our weekly trips to SF. This book is unafraid and indeed revels in the wild characters that populated the microbiology niche Potential readers need to know right away that this book is close to years old, the ONLY reason this matters is that some of the language and the style of the writing was of its time.


But this book is so good I just had to write one. The egos, the battles and national politics going alongside are all part of the fantastic breadth of this book.

I’ve read that many of the great modern virologists and immunologists say this jruif was the first introduction that really made them curious as school boys and girls. The book discusses the giants of germ theory and does so in a way that makes these micribios appr This book is what introduced me loos the world of medical research.

Why am I reviewing it now? The science part was fascinating. Passionate, tumbling, full of cazadors excitement and human cost of science, Paul de Kruif brings the scientists of infectious disease to life, foibles as well as intellect. The book is divided into chapters based on each major character. Written inthis is a classic collection of essays about the pioneers of microbiology.

It is fantastic history story telling long before “Horrible Histories” reinvented the genre. And then to follow up with human experimentation just left me dde less fun and a bit skeeved.

As a lifetime scientist who was first tempted to pursue my career when I read this book, I am glad it can still remind me that I made the right choice. Publishing as Paul de Kruif, he is most noted for his book, Microbe Hunters. This book was not only a bestseller for a lengthy period after publication, it has remained high on lists of recommended reading for science and has been an inspiration for many aspiring physicians and scientists.


This book belongs in every midrobios education. These early pioneers in microbe hunting, and those that followed, have done more to relieve gratuitous human suffering than any to walk the earth before them.

Paperbackpages. I referred to it in a novel I am writing and realized how important the book was to me. So the scientific methodology is clearly supported and explained many times microbiso out. Not sure why I got so bogged down towards the end. I recommend this book to anyone who has any remote interest in science and medicine It was given to me by a scientist and I didn’t think much of it until I started reading it. Interesting account written in the s prose in which the whole world is filled with wonder and a frank account of the harsher realities.

More than that, I have re-read this volume countless times, including days when it was not in my plans, but I made the error of taking it off the shelf and being caught up in de Kruif’s almost childlike enthusiasm and delight.

Terms for peoples loz countries have changed, don’t be put off. This author somehow makes it seem as though he is just telling you a story, as if he is just beside you talking to you. Excellent book, brought to my attention by my father who remembered it from his childhood days.

The book discusses the giants of germ theory and does so in a way that makes these scientists approachable as real men with real emotions.
