Tens of thousands of Americans are killed each year by drug-resistant bacteria picked up in medical facilities. Aimed at the general reader, this text describes the threat of constantly evolving bacteria and how physicians are trying to combat it. The authors (a journalist and an ethnobotanist) describe how bacteria work, how humans are creating "superbugs" through the widespread abuse of antibiotics, and how individuals can protect themselves and their families.
