About this book

&i;`As Zimmer shows, parasites are the real drivers of evolution: we live at best only arm's length from the unseen creatures that control our lives. Zimmer loves his subject, and his treatment is gentle rather than sensational: the understatement only heightens the horror. Read &o;Parasite Rex&i; and shudder - your dinner party conversations will never be the same again.'&o; Henry Gee, author of &i;Deep Time&o;
