A Planet of Viruses

A Planet of Viruses - Carl Zimmer An enjoyable, if way too short, overview of viruses and the world they have helped to make. I learned some things, reviewed some others, and renewed my liking for Zimmer's clean, clear prose. It's a good introduction but will leave the virus aficionado hungry for more. Read Parasite Rex or Microcosm: E. coli and the New Science of Life for a better idea of Zimmer's talents as a pop-sci writer.3.5 stars
