What a great history of microbiology publishing at Nature!
Please can you share the book review you wrote for Nature during your well-oiled flight...?
Thanks Ben. Here you go: https://www.nature.com/articles/526502a. Do bear in mind that all writing is improved by a good edit, and Barb Kiser who handles B&A at Nature is a GREAT editor who easily made sure that any slurring that made it into my draft didn't stain the pages of Nature on publication.

Thanks for this Alex, great post.
Really useful post Paul! I'm sure that there will be a great many PhD and postdocs out there that will benefit from these insights in shaping their thinking on next career steps.
A great example of the sort of discussion we were hoping to provide a space for when we set this community up, so thanks for sharing here.
Great post, thanks Frederik!
Great post Mick (and great paper), thanks for sharing here!
Boom! Great post.
It is the end of an era, but also the beginning of great new things. I therefore think now is the right time to propose a regular column of poetry and verse from you, Andy. Give the people what they want!
Ha! I could rip off a famous poetry style each week.
"There was a microbial ecologist of note,
who sailed every year on a boat,
but when asked to expand
her research on to land
she said that the idea wouldnt float."
Interesting to hear about the collaborative effort behind this paper, thanks for sharing!
