A science classic by an expert in cell biology who has come to a point in his life where he does not need to analyze and categorize and hypothesize, but merely reflects on the majesty and beauty of what we so often take for granted all around us.

one of the many thought provoking obsevations of Lewis Thomas. this book was fascinating for me not because of the scientific information provided, but because of the literary stlye used. Thomas has several underlying themes throughout the book, linking all the essays together. His observations of human behavior and the many ways the word 'cell' is interpreted makes the book worth reading.

this collection of essays focuses heavily on the unity inherent in biology. thomas has a knack for getting his points across with some of the most beautiful prose i have ever read, and his ability to make sense of the abstract and apply it to every level of biology implies much about nature. a 'must read'

i was forced to read it for class and it took me 2 months!! but then again im horrible at biology so maybe thats why i didnt like it. anyways i think that if for some odd reason you like reading about science for fun then you should try this book. but dont say i didnt warn ya...
