The preface of this book begins: "It would take a superhuman ability to explore the deeper foundations of life. What one can do, more hopefully, is to investigate just a few of its facets. This booklet is a very personal accoutn of some of my own researches. It is neither complete or continuous. I have omitted even much of my own work. No mention is made, for instance, of my work on metabolism, the C4 dicarboxylic acid catalysis which was honored by the Nobel Prize and which has led to the Krebs cycle." ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 114 pages; 0126809607.
