Critical Praise

“A comprehensive and elegant analysis of the physical basis of life: an up-to-date successor to Schrödinger’s 1944 book.”

——Marvin Minsky, Toshiba Professor of Media Arts and Sciences, M.I.T., and author of The Emotion Machine

“Ed Regis is always a careful researcher, always an independent thinker. In this subversive little book, he shows that the biggest of big questions is still worth asking --- more urgently now than ever.”

——David Quammen

“Elegant, simple, clear, beautifully written. Regis takes up where Erwin Schrödinger left off and tackles the ultimate mystery of biology. This book is a scrumptious gem."

——Richard Preston, author of The Hot Zone
