I've e-mailed them, hopefully if enough people do then they'll make it available. I thought about e-mailing the author but as far as I can tell John L. Howland passed away October 18th 2009, if it's the same John L. Howland that was a Professor of Natural Sciences and Professor of Biology and Biochemistry Emeritus at Bowdoin College.
Has anybody got any recommendations for ebooks about virology, bacteriology or medicine? Has anyone read Killer Germs by Barry and David Zimmerman?
Not available as an ebook,
but there is a book from 2007 on the topic: "The Third Domain: The Untold Story of Archaea and the Future of Biotechnology" by Tim Friend.
