While UC - Davis Professor Emeritus Ingraham does touch on classification, his main theme is the biology and ecology of microorganisms. He has produced a truly astounding collection of facts and stories about how the microbial world informs our own and how it is certainly the tiny things that can aid or get one in trouble. The fascinating stories about wine-making, cheese production, plant diseases, digestive floras, microbial mats, nutrient cycling, pathogenic microbes, and numerous other bizarre and often vital microbe activities, are truly remarkable. It is in fact difficult to describe this book without superlatives, it is so informative, interesting and well-written.
This is another book that all people who want to try and understand the world around them should read. Fortunately this is a book that is both easy to read and hard to put down. I recommend it without reservation.
I don't leave reviews for books often (this is my first) but this one really stayed with me. It had a lot of stories that told me things I never knew, -- astonishing facts that further fueled my love for microbiology.
It's a great read for people getting into microbiology or want to learn about something that is in every day life.
Also, the picture on the cover are diatoms. That chapter blew my mind and I never thought about the ocean the same way again. This books can be difficult to read at times, but it's so interesting that it really is worth your time. I'm graduating soon but I can't bear to sell this book.
