** The Hidden Half of Nature by David Montgomery and Anne Bikle

The Hidden Half of Nature: The Microbial Roots of Life and Health brings together, rather awkwardly, a discussion of the human microbiome and one of microorganisms in soil. While the similarities are compelling at a high level, the authors try too hard to bring the two together, and the result is a book that feels forced. Still, interesting information can be gleaned from both sides.
