An extraordinary range of infectious agents affect humans, from worms, arthropods, and fungi to bacteria, viruses, and prions. The variety of these agents is enormous and the ways they transmit infection often remarkable. Looking at the nature of each, David I. Grove explores how each was discovered and the lives of those discoverers. This fascinating exploration of infections around the globe is enormously fascinating and highly readable.
