I have, what is our relationship?" In this book biology meets philosophy meets wonder. Even people who are not familiar with the technical terms will find provocative thoughts and observations to quickstart their own reflections.
The language is unfamiliar and the concepts are complicated - at least to this layman - but I can't get enough of Thomas' marvelous writing. It's like science as poetry.
Am I now well-versed in the secret life of the cell? Let's say I'm better versed than I was before I read the book. The best part is that I want to read more. Thomas' writing opens a door and invites you in. The beauty of it is that once you get there, you want to stay.
Thomas doesn't talk down to the average reader but does introduce many scientific terms to stimulate our thumbing through our dictionaries.
