I can’t praise this book enough, and it’s about so much more than it appears.
The research and details that are covered in this book are breathtaking. Rob Dunn is a biologist, as well as Professor of Biology at North Carolina University, and clearly, the things that live in our homes with us are a passion of his. Not only do we learn all about the things we can see; cockroaches, ants, mice, for example, but also the things we can’t see, namely the seemingly endless kinds of bacteria that live on us, as well as around us. We learn the history of our emotions to certain living things, the reasons why we prefer some over others, and the ways they can influence not only our health, but sometimes our personality.
I had so many jaw dropping moments while reading, and I could not wait to share these revelations to anyone who would listen. I can not recommend this highly enough. ~ Reviewed by Becky Doherty
