    One thought on “The Secret Family: Twenty-Four Hours Inside the Mysterious World of Our Minds and Bodies”

    1. If you think this is just another biology book or some sort of mystery who done it,you are very wrong. It is actually about all the microscopic beasties living on us and all the microscopic environmental things our bodies deal with every day. It isn't dry reading. The author has a wonderful sense of humor which makes reading this book a pleasure. It also makes you want to put on a bubble suit to protect yourself from the many things bombarding you every second. But that is silly because most of [...]

    2. Pop-Sci at it best (from the early-Internet era)!? Amusing, engaging, definitely entertaining, albeit a bit outdated, capably edited, microphotographical overview of all the biochemistry activities surrounding an average family's members, with a dash of social stats (some begging for 2nd updated revision), historical references, consumer psychology etc. Sadly (or thankfully as these would probably triple the book weight) references aren't given. Great introduction to Bodanis' writing style, just [...]

    3. I didn't really read the book, but I really love the pictures in this book. It's a hardproof that we're never really alone in this world. Because there are thousands of little creatures that are unseen by our naked eyes that interacts with our everyday lifes

    4. David Bodanis is an amazing science writer. In this book ,he takes a day in the life of an average family and reveals the science behind their everyday actions.Parents of young children may want to skip the part about what actually goes into baby food. Highly reccommended.

    5. I didn't finish this book. It was VERY well-written and everything, but there was just too much information and I couldn't take it all in.

    6. nonfiction (fictionalized). I didn't care for the writing style--a bit too cluttered/dense for me to enjoy.

    7. Ha ha! This book is AWESOME. A germaphobe's nightmare. You will most definitely find out some things you wish you hadn't.
