Product description

Review

The emergence of life itself remains obscure. But as Lane shows with clarity and vigor, fascinating studies on the subject abound. — The New York Times

Excellent and imaginative and, similar to life itself, the book is full of surprises. — Nature

Lane lays out processes of dizzying complexity in smooth, nimble prose. — Kirkus Reviews

If Charles Darwin sprang from his grave, I would give him this fine book to bring him up to speed. — Matt Ridley, author of The Red Queen --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
