What People are Saying About This

Joseph E. Murray

This book is outstanding. With imagination, creativity, incisive sketches, and humorous cartoons, The Way Life Works is a wonderful antidote to biological illiteracy.

James D. Watson

. . . intelligently and charmingly strips away the veil of ignorance that too long has separated the general public from the molecules.

Elizabeth Marshall Thomas

What fun! What scholarship! What a bonanza for the layman, to find so much information presented in such a lively, highly readable manner.
