Reviews

The emergence of life itself remains obscure. But as Lane shows with clarity and vigor, fascinating studies on the subject abound.
Excellent and imaginative and, similar to life itself, the book is full of surprises.
Lane lays out processes of dizzying complexity in smooth, nimble prose.
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
