Microcosm: E. coli and the New Science of Life Zimmer, C. 2008

Carl Zimmer is one of the best popular science writers in biology and evolution today. He tells a great story, and makes the science accessible and entertaining to the lay reader without compromising its integrity or dumbing it down. I’d recommend all his books, but this is particularly elegant.
