"Carl Zimmer's illuminating book charts a fascinating chapter in the soul's journey."

The New York Times Book Review

"Describes a kind of second Copernican revolution -- one inside the body. Thrilling."
-- Ross King,
Los Angeles Times

"This page-turner is a tribute to the heretical thinkers who decoded nature by relying on direct observation rather than received opinion."
--
Wired

"A thumping good read."
-- Timothy Ferris, author of
The Whole Shebang and Coming of Age in the Milky Way
