Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

'This concise readable book explains, in language understandable to a wide audience, the author\'s somewhat controversial views about the possible origin of life. His major statement on the subject, \'Genetic Takeover\' (published by the Press in 1982) attracted much publicity and acclaim. With the upsurge of interest in evolution there has been considerable debate about primeval events and in this book the evidence is presented in an amusing and logical manner in the style of a detective story.'

Synopsis:

This amusing, lively book explains in language comprehensible to the layman, the author's somewhat controversial views about the possible origin of life.
