Virus

Particles. Paranoia. Pandemics.

A CONTAGIOUS READING PLEASURE!

Matthias Eckoldt tells the story of the virus and its scientific exploration that spans from the mythical abiogenesis of the pathogens to modern laboratory techniques and menacing future scenarios.
A story of pandemics could be told quickly and would always show the same gloomy process. Yet it is made fascinating when set against the backdrop of the study of viruses, the struggle for gaining insight into their specific nature. In his new book, multi-award-winning science author Matthias Eckoldt tells the story of these smallest of forms of life, from the speculations in Antiquity and utterly fearless self-experiments to the cunning contemporary methods of analysis. This book makes clear that, to date, we have barely begun to penetrate the world of viruses. A highly gripping and readily intelligible scientific work.
