I am a geek for certain things and microbes is one of them! Who knew that we have tons of microbes in our bodies? That they differ in different parts of the body and from other humans. Besides understanding what they are, this book does a great job explaining what is being unearthed of how microbes can affect many things including depression or obesity. Could a microbe cocktail be in our future on how to right the upset microbes? Recommended because the author writes in lay terms, has great footnoted references and some nifty illustrations which helps a non-science mind like mine better understand!

Excellent little book based on Knight's TED talk. Very informative for the novice who is new to exploring their own microbiota. Highly recommend!!!
