Reviews

'A beautifully written exploration of perhaps the most important question in science.' Brian Cox ------- 'A nearly perfect guide to the wonder and complexity of existence.' Bill Bryson -------- 'Paul Nurse is about as distinguished a scientist as there could be. He is also a great communicator. This book explains, in a way that is both clear and elegant, how the processes of life unfold.' Philip Pullman -------- 'The writing is so spirited and knowledgeable - and the five sections so full of wondrous revelations - that I could not put it down.' Siddhartha Mukherjee -------- 'It's the biggest question in biology. And this book represents the best answer I've ever seen. Paul Nurse is a rare life-form - a Nobel-winning scientist and a brilliant communicator.' Alice Roberts ------- 'Paul Nurse provides a concise, lucid response to an age-old question. His writing is not just informed by long experience, but also wise, visionary and personal.' Dava Sobel
