Outside the box,
This review is from: A New Science of Life (Paperback)
For anyone who feels there's "more to life" than our present scientific view lets on, and doesn't want to float away in a mystical denial of reality, this book is just what's needed. Rupert Sheldrake almost certainly does not have all the right answers but more importantly he is asking the right questions.
As a medic and PhD engineer, I am sure that future generations will look back at our present mechanical model of life and say "How on earth did they think this would explain the observed facts?" This is your chance to be in at the beginning of phase 3 in the understanding of biology (phase 1: it's all a mystery; phase 2: it's just chemistry...).
The most mind-expanding book I've read in the last year.
