    1 thought on “Hunger Fighters

    1. Paul de Kruif's enthusaism here becomes overwrought and breathless. I enjoyed this read, but after his Microbe Hunters, the quality does not match, and it feels as though he has lost his measure. Still, if you have an interest in the history of science and in the obscure lives of heroes who fought and indeed suffered for our changes in food production and the understanding of nutrition, read this book. Nowhere else will you find as dramatic a presentation of these unsung, sometimes tragic figure [...]

    2. I actually didn't quite finish this book since I had to return it to the library. The author has a very interesting and engaging style of writing. I own his book called "microbe Hunters" which I've read several times and thoroughly enjoyed, so I wanted to check out another of his books. This one didn't grab me quite as much as the other, but he really has a way of making a potentially textbook-dry subject into a fascinating exploration of discovery.
