It is outstanding, one of the best books on biology that I have ever read!
Fascinating book about the evolution of cells and the role of mitochondria in allowing large eukaryote cells and multi-cellular organisms.
Like most science writers, Nick Lane provides his own theories and ideas on the subject, that's why he wrote the book in the first place.

Good book, but even better when read together with his book "Oxygen", as they cover many of the same themes but from different directions.Published 1 month ago by Marshall Lee Miller

My husband is wrapt in this book! keeps quoting it to me - he is so immersed he is going to read it a second time.Published 5 months ago by A. Chappel
Very well researched and written. The material is easily accessable if you have a biological education. If not, it may be more difficult to interpret, but still fascinating.Published 5 months ago by Alex Davis
