Abstract:

Chances are good that when you ask senior microbiologists how they got into this science, they will tell you that they were influenced as teenagers by reading . I was about 14 years old when I did, and I became transfixed by the glorious and intrepid achievements of our forefathers, told in a jaunty and florid style. There was nothing else I wanted to do with myself than to become a Microbe Hunter.
