6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on May 16, 2000
Format: Paperback
This a rounded portrait of a scientific career and of nineteenth century science. Dubos traces the threads of Pasteur's research, shows his inspiration & practical skill, & shows the limitations imposed by time & place. The whole is readable & well oranized.

8 of 13 people found the following review helpful By O'Malley's cat on April 21, 1999
Format: Paperback
This is a book that praises Pasteur, but has no order to the presentation of either his life or his work. One word can sum it up: disorganized. There are many better bios available of Pasteur.
