Journal Entry 1 by wingGoryDetailswing from Nashua, New Hampshire USA on Tuesday, January 28, 2020
I got this softcover at Barnes and Noble; it's about the range of living things that share our homes with us - for better or worse! It includes the history of microscopy, which introduced the world to the invisible-to-the-naked-eye creatures that inhabit water, food, even our very eyelashes. There are examinations of the ways in which changes in human society and lifestyles have encouraged some lifeforms while discouraging others - not always to our benefit. Creatures that spread disease contrast with those that have benign interactions with humans - and the peril of attempting to have too sterile an environment comes up more than once. From insects to staph infections to the yeasts that ferment our foods, there's a lot to cover here, often quite eye-opening.

I left this book in the Little Free Library, while noticing how the foliage is beginning to take on autumn colors. Hope someone enjoys the book!
