Attempting to demystify science by revealing the human faces of leading scientists, is a continuation of the story of the beginnings of microbiology as told by Paul de Kruif in his 1926 book Microbe Hunters. This collection of diverse, down-to-earth personal essays from contemporary microbiologists highlights how and why each became a microbiologist and illustrates the fascinating breadth of the field.

The contributors, leading figures in microbiology, are truly reflective of today's society, men and women of all ages and backgrounds. Together they are united by an interest in the acquisition and application of knowledge about microbes and how they affect our lives.

Fascinating reading for scientists and non-scientists alike, is a tale to entice a new generation of microbiologists to seek the excitement of exploring the unseen world.
