MyBook is a cheap paperback edition of the original book and will be sold at uniform, low price.

Pasteur's stunning career has attracted a host of biographies, but this book, written by a distinguished French-born microbiologist, is among the best. Dubos displays a deep appreciation for the power and enduring significance of Pasteur's scientific work. His graceful writing style allows for him to convey the excitement and signficance of even the most technical aspects of Pasteur's work.

Now, updated to the present day by the distinguished microbiologist, Thomas D. Brock, the book also includes a foreword by Pasteur scholar Gerald L. Geison from Princeton University that places the book in historical context. The book contains more than forty illustrations and tables, as well as a glossary and additional text.

For high school and college undergraduate students, as well as the general reader, this is the ideal introduction to the life of Louis Pasteur.
