I read the book a few months ago. It was heavy going and I ran up some library overdue fines. The IBD studies did not show a lot of hopeful results but at least a lot of research is happening. We are not being ignored.
I noticed that Yong, the author, in his celebration of microbes didn't say much about Bad Bugs or the need to avoid them. For example they are having a public health emergency around hepatitis A in Florida. I recall that he is not a big fan of probiotics, saying they don't colonize the gut.
