Everyone should hear this set. It is the single best "book" I have encountered in my life, in sense also of most Important and mind changing. I have checked it out and listened to it many times.

Excellent! Dr. Dexter Dyer is an outstanding, engaging lecturer, a skilled educator. She made the subject of bacteria fascinating. Bacteria are the oldest and most diverse forms of life on Earth. They are, in fact, a foundation for life on this planet. They pervade our lives, our existence. After listening and re-listening to Dr Dexter Dyer's lectures I checked out several more books on the subject, and purchased her Field Guide to Bacteria.
