9780091812690: The Way Life Works

In the tradition of David Macaulay's The Way Things Work, this popular-science book--a unique collaboration between a world-renowned molecular biologist and an equally talented artist--explains how life grows, develops, reproduces, and gets by. Full color.

Review:

I can think of virtually no better book for introducing children or biology-impaired adults to the wonders of the machinery of life, from the molecular to the macroevolutionary. Wonderfully written, delightfully illustrated, and sure to engage and educate. A delightful and successful cross between Larry Gonick's classic Cartoon Guides and Cartoon Historys (but less flip) and David Macaulay's many masterful books on the way things work (but more comprehensive). Highly Recommended.

Review:

"a fresh look at how we teach biology...a completely new type of textbook that is both scientifically accurate and stunning to look at." -- Bruce Alberts, President National Academy of Science

intelligent and charmingly strips away the veil of ignorance that too long has separated the student from the molecules that make possible life -- James D. Watson, Nobel Laureate
