Pasteur's stunning career has attracted a host of biographies, but this book, written by a distinguished French-born microbiologist, is among the best. Dubos displays a deep appreciation for the power and enduring significance of Pasteur's scientific work. His graceful writing style allows for him to convey the excitement and signficance of even the most technical aspects of Pasteur's work.

Revised by distinguished microbiologist, Thomas D. Brock, the book includes a foreword by Pasteur scholar Gerald L. Geison from Princeton University that places the book in historical context. The book contains more than forty illustrations and tables, as well as a glossary and additional text.

For high school and college undergraduate students, as well as the general reader, this is the ideal introduction to the life of Louis Pasteur.
