Life itself: Its origin and nature by Francis Crick
This book is Crick's most comprehensive analysis of the theory of panspermia. This theory basically says that life on earth originated after the planet was "seeded" with DNA by extraterrestrial intelligent beings. Francis explains why this theory (which he didn't come up with but in his times analyzed more than anyone) is plausible.

I just received the book and just started reading it. There don't seem to be many silly things written in it, like in most books (except a sentence I randomly read that says that "I cannot help but thinking that it will be the meat-eaters who will want to explore space and the vegetarians who are likely to oppose it" [?]).

Furthermore, I think that reading this book and complaining about the "bad translation" work means you at least kind of miss the whole point. But it seems that some people do have a problem with the translation so I would suggest that if you are looking for a book that will help you learn the Tibetan language perfectly, this one might not do (I'm not sure about this actually). Buy it only if you are looking for a book that contains several… Read more
