    $5.99 Add to cart

    Louis Pasteur, Carlos Juan Finlay, Lynn Margulis, Margarita Salas, Jean-Jacques Muyembe, Francis Mojica, Katalin Karikó… Científicos y científicas que han cambiado nuestra vida son los protagonistas de este emocionante recorrido por la historia de la ciencia.

    Hoy todos conocemos la vacuna contra la covid-19, pero nadie se tomaba en serio a Katalin Karikó, la científica que la hizo posible, cuando empezó sus investigaciones. Igual que ella, los cazadores de microbios a lo largo de la historia se han enfrentado a menudo a la incomprensión y la indiferencia. Armados tan solo de curiosidad y una pasión feroz, se zambulleron en un mundo desconocido en busca de conocimiento y formas de vencer las enfermedades; algunos llegaron incluso a inocularse peligrosos virus para probar sus vacunas y sus curas.

    Este libro está lleno de historias heroicas y alucinantes del mundo de la microbiología. Habla de los nombres que todos conocemos, pero también de científicas y científicos desconocidos y olvidados. También habla de plagas, de pandemias, de virus, de anticuerpos y de lo mucho que les debemos a las bacterias. Es una pequeña historia del misterio de la vida y de los héroes que lucharon y aún luchan por desentrañarlo.

    A moving, page-turning novel about a family’s grief and the crisis afflicting the rainforest, from the prize-winning author of Refugee 87

    Ever since Jack’s dad died, he’s had a heavy feeling inside. The pressure keeps building. Looking for release, he starts skiving school and hanging around with a group who like to cause trouble. It’s easy to hide his new habits from his mum, an environmental anthropologist, because she’s too busy with work and conservation trips to notice.

    As Jack spins further out of control, his mum eventually becomes concerned – and shocks him by suggesting a trip together.

    But this will be no relaxing holiday. Soon Jack finds himself on an expedition deep into the rainforest, far from anything he’s ever known. He wanted an adventure – but has he plunged into real danger?
