About this book

The first full biography of d'Herelle, a complex figure who emulated Louis Pasteur and influenced the course of twentieth- century biology, yet remained a controversial outsider to the scientific community. This is more than the biography of a single brilliant scientist - it is a fascinating chapter in the history of science.
