Product description


`'. . . popular science writing at its very best - clear yet challenging, speculative yet rigorous. The book is a tour de force which orchestrates a seamless story out of both venerable ideas and very recent discoveries in several disparate fields.''
Bernard Dixon

`'. . . a breathtaking, broad vision of the role of a single gas in our life, from the origin of organisms, through the emergence of creatures, and to their deaths . . . packed full of interesting life- and death-stories . . . A wonderful read.'
Peter Atkins

`'. . . one of the most thought-provoking books I have ever read.''
John Emsley

`Nick Lane's chapters are dispatches from the frontiers of research into Earth and life history, but they contain nothing that will lose the patient reader and much that will reward.'
The Guardian Review

`a brisk revelatory study'
Christopher Hirst, The Independent

`. . . Nick Lane marshals an impressive array of evidence - [an] ambitious narrative . . . This is science writing at its best.'
Jerome Burne, The Financial Times
