The Lives of a Cell, Notes of a Biology Watcher
The Lives of a Cell Notes of a Biology Watcher Author:Lewis Thomas ...Read this book...It is an unlikely, indeed a very rare work: an ode to biology, luminous in style and bursting with information, a celebration of and cerebration on life...
A slim, short book of tightly packed essays filled with theories, ideas, and musings. My own opinion is that the essays - while interesting - are noticeably dated. But I loved the "time capsule" feel of reading a book by someone who has seen many of his theories become concrete reality, many of his easily-spoken predictions come true. Really interesting.
