And impressive how much work they could do with viruses without being able to see them.

Cazadores de Microbios : Paul De Kruif :

Excellent book, brought to my attention by my father who remembered it from his childhood days. Oct 23, Gustavo Eder Gonzalez Alvarez rated it it was amazing. And, it was written in the s!

Simply knowing to wash hands, boil drinking water and oruif away from mosquito bites improved the human condition immeasurably. But not the majority.

Reading the book made me think about becoming something other than an astronomer or cosmologist. In other ways I just want to live in that fun, light style and not have to think about all of those difficult subjects.

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 This book belongs in every reader’s education. This book belongs in every reader’s education. Wrong headed, but honest. Some of his writings created mlcrobios for him.

Despite this I can see why this book remains in print. I’ve read that many of the great modern virologists and immunologists say this book was the first introduction that really made them curious as school boys and girls. This book is unafraid and indeed revels in the wild characters that populated the microbiology niche. Imagine comforting a grieving mother hysterical about her baby dying of diphtheria with a cure! So the scientific methodology is clearly supported and explained many times through out.

I don’t think it was intentional. Paperbackpages. It is a beautiful thing. This book encouraged me even more to go into medical research. What is particularly impressive is his ability to set each researcher’s accomplishments squarely Written inthis is a classic collection of essays about the pioneers of microbiology.

Want to Read saving…. The book is divided into chapters based on each major character. The writing is probably dated now, but the way it captured the excitement of research discoveries convinced me to pursue this as a career.

OR when we forget and don’t save history or read history, this too is highlighted when science must start again. Thanks for telling us about the problem. 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.


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.

The writing was different.

Los Cazadores de Microbios

I wanted to like this book, especially in the beginning. Jan 01, Chuchiqo rated it it was amazing.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. This book is what introduced me to the world of medical research. Passionate, microobios, full of the excitement and human cost of science, Paul de Kruif brings the scientists of infectious disease to life, foibles as well as intellect.

Mild racism made much more icky because he was so playful about it. The only person it speaks about is him.
