Do not however be mistaken in assuming the book is not academic in nature, it certainly is and would no doubt provide a good extra book to be read side by side with the standard texts in molecular biology. Some of the more difficult ideas present in the material are often presented in ways that simplify the concept, often through the use of a diagram. This is also a good idea.
All in all a good book to include in your library to be read alongside a standard text.

Although the book is written in an easy style, it really discusses serious and newest discoveries in Molecular Biology. This book starts with an introduction to the Central Dogma (the DNA/RNA/proteins and their relationship). Then it focuses mainly on answering the following three questions:
1) How the proteins fold quickly to their correct structures?
2) Why different proteins associate tightly?
3) How proteins "recognize" other proteins?
These are seemingly easy and basic questions. However, it turns out that people know the answers very recently. The first two questions are even listed by the Journal of Science as "unknowns of science" in 2005!
This books tells the readers that water plays an important role in the answers to all these questions. You can find how the water works by reading this book. After that, you may have new understandings of why water are so important to life.
I strongly recommend anyone who are interested in Molecular Biology to read this book. You'll have a pleasing reading experience, while learn new knowledge at the same time. After reading this book, perhaps you'll also appreciate natures's ingenious and human's wisdom as deeply as I did.
In a narrative way we follow the advantures of Allice touring the incredible dance of the building elements and their relations that constitute the living cell . DNA . RNA, Proteins and more. Professor Ben Arie's book , written in an amusimg easily understandable style , fully overcomes the barrier that prevent the unprofessional from a smooth penetration into the secrets of biological world. Recommended to biology students. Beginners as well as advanced. And for their teachers too. Join the travels of Allice.

I particularly enjoyed the stories which I found entertaining.
The book is a perfect gift for the young, and those who are interested to know more about molecular biology.
Kudos to Arieh Ben-Naim for another good read.
