Reviews - What do customers think about Louis Pasteur: And the Founding of Microbiology (Renaissance Scientists)?

The Superhero Scientist  Apr 5, 2004
This is the true story of how a stubborn, compassionate, patriotic genius saves France -- and the world -- from disease and disaster time and again.

Louis Pasteur developed the vaccine for rabies and discovered the mystery of how anthrax was spread. These discoveries saved countless lives. He also saved the world an unknowable fortune with his discoveries that saved the French silk and wine industries. His method of heating food to prevent spoilage, pasteurization, revolutionized nearly every aspect of growing, shipping, and preparing food and drink.

The science involved in these profound discoveries can be complicated, but Ackerman presents them clearly and in an interesting, readable way.

We get to know the many sides of Pastuer, the driven scientist, the struggling student (who is also courting his future wife, Marie) the grief-strickn father, (He loses three of his children to disease)and the great and honored hero-scientist.

We come away from the book with a new understanding of microbiology and the man who founded it.
