It’s an entire world, a colony full of life. In other words, you contain multitudes.They sculpt our organs, protect us from diseases, guide our behaviour, and bombard us with their genes. They also hold the key to understanding all life on earth.In I Contain Multitudes, Ed Yong opens our eyes and invites us to marvel at ourselves and other animals in a new light, less as individuals and more as thriving ecosystems. You’ll never think about your mind, body or preferences in the same way again.’Super-interesting… He just keeps imparting one surprising, fascinating insight after the next. I Contain Multitudes is science journalism at its best’ Bill Gates
