Description:

A Battle is Taking Place on the frontiers of medicine between rapidly evolving bacteria that threaten our health and the doctors who are struggling to outwit them. These bacteria are everywhere: in and on our bodies, in homes, schools, hospitals, crowded airplanes, day-care centers. And, as this acclaimed book makes frighteningly clear, so far the bacteria are winning. The Killers Within is popular science writing at its best -- a report from the front lines at once accessible and riveting. Book jacket.
