    1. Jason Tetro spent fifteen years researching microbiology at the University of Ottawa, so he s a germ expert Or a hypochondriac Being an expert hypochondriac myself, I opened this book with some trepidation after reading the bold red type on the back cover SOME GERMS ARE OUT TO GET US Yikes.I plunged bravely onward, opening the book at random to a page about honey With its proteins, antioxidants, minerals, fructose, glucose, sucrose and fermented antimicrobials, raw honey can attack bacteria know [...]

    2. To be fair, I don t think I was really in the mood when I read this book I had heard an interview with the author on the radio, and the book sounded interesting, so I ordered it from the library.However, I found myself skipping through most of the book I was hoping for of a list of tips and neat ideas, but I found that there was too much theory, and I just found it too boring I did learn two things 1 Flush the toilet with the lid down 2 if you can t wash something stinky ie from sweat in hot wa [...]

    3. A great summary of how our body and environment all works when it comes to microbes I have some many highlights to go through I think I ll have to buy a print version of this book to keep as a reference Highly recommend it to get accurate information.

    4. Got 80% through and then did not finish Not much new to me or stated in a new way I prefer reading about the discovery process, symptoms, and treatment of disease over a general book about microbes.

    5. This is a fascinating book not only about how germs work but how systems in our body respond to germs Not all germs are bad Some are superheroes This author takes what could be a very dry subject and turns it into an exciting journey of exploration.

    6. Very interesting even if I think his prescription for probiotics for everything is a bit simplistic Worthwhile though.

    7. This book is well written, informative and very interesting I am recommending it to all my nurse friends and biology loving students It d make a great Christmas present
