  • Description:
    In 2006, Elio Schaechter began a blog, titled Small Things Considered, about the microbial world for the American Society for Microbiology (ASM). The book, In the Company of Microbes: Ten Years of Small Things Considered (Figure), is a selected compilation of 70 of the more than 1,000 blog entries that were posted through 2015. Contributions from 33 writers in addition to Dr. Schaechter are included. These writers are past presidents of ASM and microbiologists from academic institutions around the world. The selections were chosen mostly because they were the authors’ personal or historical reflections on interactions with microbes. As such, these are aimed to be enjoyable reads, without bogging the reader down in obscurely technical scientific, often ephemeral, data.
