René J. Dubos. Pasteur and modern science
Series: Scientific revolutionaries
Pasteur's stunning career has attracted a host of biographies, but this book, written by a distinguished French-born microbiologist, is among the best. Dubos displays a deep appreciation for the power and enduring significance of Pasteur's scientific work. His graceful writing style allows him to convey the excitement and significance of even the most technical aspects of Pasteur's work. Now, updated to the present day by the distinguished microbiologist Thomas D. Brock, the book also has a foreword by Pasteur scholar Gerald L.Geison that places it in historical context. For high school and college students, as well as the general reader, this is the ideal introduction to the life of Louis Pasteur.
