What I Feel, I Can't Say...,
This review is from: What is Life?: How chemistry becomes biology (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Erwin Schrödinger might have famously asked 'What is Life?' many years ago, but his quesion was also posed in the title of a popular song by George Harrison on his 1971 triple-album (on vinyl, at least) 'All Things Must Pass'. The song, although only an album track for George, became a hit single for Aussie songstress Olivia Newton-John. My appropriate review title, comes from the first line of the song itself.
Now that I've divested myself of the above, completely extraneous, information, I can report that this book is an all-encompassing work that links chemistry to organic life forms and then flows on to posit and comment on much broader scientific issues as well as philosophical ones.
Falling somewhere between a long lecture and a popular science book, 'What is Life' is a good, non-difficult read, that should illuminate the minds and bookshelves of all modern persons who consider themselves intelligent and self aware.
