Dr. Billy Earley, a veteran practitioner and graduate from the Charles Drew School of Medicine and Science, brings his expertise of cellular biology and genetics to the printed page. The trick of this novel, thinly disguised as a science lecture, is to explain the complexities of life and the interconnected realm of all cellular structure. He has done a masterful job with a topic which would bore most readers, young or old, to tears.

Throughout this short novella, royalty and religion try to win the public's favor with lies, myth, and brutality. Dr. Earley, a man of science, draws parallels with this realm and the contemporary world where the political and organized religious influences have distorted and twisted basic truths about life and values to their advantage.

He explains these themes in a simple, straightforward manner in this sword-and-sandals plot better than the more intricate novels could have.

Dr. Earley is saying we need to take science seriously. We need our students to take the mysteries of science seriously.

Far beneath the microscopes, the bacteria live their lives. "The Gods of the Bacteria: The World Before Darwin" is a fantasy novel with a twist, as it surrounds the first bacteria formed in our world, millions of years ago. Twisting the bacteria story with traditional fantasy, "The Gods of the Bacteria" will prove an amusing and entertaining read, recommended.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It was very well written and very entertaining as well. Billy Z. Earley is a very good author and I look forward to reading his other book also. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading and also exploring the world of medicine. This is the best book that I have read in a very long time. Good job Billy!

"The Gods of the Bacteria: The World Before Darwin" is a book that I whole heartedly recommend to all. I enjoyed following the antics of the Bacterians and look forward to the next episode. This is a story that will keep your interest throughout with its humor and exploits. It's good to have a refreshing story like this one to read while on a plane or train. Excellent job.
