An amazing book which put so many pieces of the DNA jigsaw into one whole which made sense. If you want to look into the future of medicine this is the place to look. Unputdownable book, very well written indeed.

A truly fascinating book which covered child development in the way "mother used to do it" while side by side explaining the scientific basis for brain development and hence a rationale for children's behaviour.
A must not only for parents but grandparents too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Cells!, 5 Jun 2009
This was an amazing book. I have read lewis Wolpert's work before and his style suits me and I find it easy to read. If you like knowing about how we work as organisms this is the book for you. I'm a scientist and some material was not new to me but lots of it updated me. I could not put the book down. I am going to use it as a text book for the students I teach because I think it is very accessible.
However it will do for the curious general reader too - everything is well and simply explained - never before was cell biology so transparent and easy to understand.
