WHY ARENT WE DEAD YET? is a witty and fascinating journey into the human immune system. In the book, Idan takes a playful look at the way germs lurk in our bodies, how we develop immunity to disease-causing agents, and how we fight off viruses and infections against all odds. This highly accessible book is filled with traces of quirky humour reminiscent of Bill Bryson, and will appeal to adults and young adults alike. It raises the questions: ‘Have we gone too far in making bacteria the enemy? And why aren’t we dead yet?‘. Scott from Art Smitten had a chat to the author, Idan Ben-Barak about the book.
