Feb books

First up is I, Superorganism, by Jon Turney.

Every human body carries a secret cargo: a huge population of micro-organisms that lives in your mouth and nose, on your skin, in your guts. This is the human microbiome and this is the focus of Jon Turney’s cutting-edge work, the first book-length account of a new, thrilling realm of human biology.

Learn about the true make-up of the machine you call a body, question the impact of human habits on the functioning of this ecosystem and see yourself in a new (microscopic) light with I, Superorganism.
