So far, life remains the only way to make life. Authors Jim Al-Khalili and Johnjoe Macfadden ask whether we are still missing a vital ingredient in its creation. Chapter by chapter they ask — How do migrating birds know where to go? How do we really “smell” the scent of a rose? How do our genes copy themselves with such precision? The two authors bring together first-hand experience at cutting edge science to reveal the missing ingredient to be quantum mechanics. Life on the Edge: The Coming of Age of Quantum Biology alters our understanding of the fundamental dynamics of life and opens the door to understanding our future.
