Description


En Parque Jurásico Michael Crichton nos enseñó un nuevo mundo terrorífico. En Micro nos descubre un universo demasiado minúsculo para verlo, pero demasiado peligroso para ignorarlo.
 
En la densa selva de Oahu, Hawai, un grupo de científicos de los laboratorios Nanigen MicroTechnologies se dedica a estudiar las drogas naturales presentes en trillones de microorganismos y miles de bacterias con la intención de aprovechar todas las aplicaciones comerciales posibles. Con este fin, Nanigen ficha a siete estudiantes posgraduados para trabajar en sus laboratorios de Hawai. Allí participarán en descubrimientos microbiológicos que jamás hubieran podido siquiera imaginar. Pero una vez en la selva de Oahu, los siete se encontrarán inmersos en un mundo hostil tan peligroso como sorprendente. El único recurso que podrán utilizar será sus conocimientos especializados, que les ayudarán a encauzar las fuerzas de la propia naturaleza.
 
Una novela sensacional, terminada por el prestigioso escritor científico Richard Preston, Micro es un apasionante thriller sobre el fascinante futuro de la microbiología.

About the Author


Michael Crichton was a writer and filmmaker, best known as the author of Jurassic Park and the creator of ER. One of the most popular entertainers in the world, Crichton sold more than 200 million copies of his books which have been translated into 40 languages and adapted into 15 films. Long before the carefully researched techno-thrillers that ultimately brought him to fame, Crichton wrote high-octane suspense novels to support himself while studying at Harvard Medical School. He published eight of these books under the pseudonym John Lange between the years of 1966 and 1972. They provided him with the means to complete his education. He graduated at the top of his class.

Through the years, Richard Prestor has amassed a fascinating collection of historic photographs of Milwaukee. This tribute to the author's home town is not meant to be a definitive history of the city, but rather a light-hearted look at the people who made Milwaukee's history. On many personal levels, you will see how people lived, worked, and entertained themselves. Join Mr. Prestor on a fascinating visual journey that brings new life to Milwaukee's history.
