Ed Yong’s “I Contain Multitudes” is an awe-inspiring exploration of the hidden universe of microorganisms—from the way they shaped the evolution of plants and animals to the way they steer adaptations to hostile environments today. Yong writes with wit and candor, recasting microbes from their conventional role of infectious villains to (mostly harmless) support players. Anyone harboring the minutest curiosity about the thriving life beneath their skin and inside their guts will find this book an incredibly insightful read.
