"I Contain Multitudes" explores the fascinating and frequently bizarre world of microbes, and the complex partnerships they share with every animal species on Earth. Our own relationship with microbes has undergone close scrutiny over the last decade. Scientists are just beginning to uncover how important these unseen partners are to our everyday health, and how individual species and vast communities of microbes affect our vulnerability to disease and can even impact our behavior.
