From the tiniest bacterium to the largest blue whale, every one of earth's one hundred million species is governed by the same rules of life. As a researcher at the history-making Atlas Experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, particle physicist Brian Cox possesses very particular knowledge about life at its most elemental levels. His Wonders of Life introduces us to miracles that we never imagined; how, for instance, horses "invented" four legs from fins or the fact that water has both a positive and a negative makes life possible on earth. This abundantly illustrated book raises our consciousnesses on every page. Editor's recommendation.
