“A 304 page preface to the future of cell biology"

Cell 688-689, 2002. Don Ingber, Harvard University.

 

Synopsis

An award winning book that challenges the current wisdom of how cells work in a visionary, provocative, and accessible way... reads like a detective story...

This highly praised book emphasizes the role of cell water and the gel-like nature of the cell, building on these features to explore the mechanisms of communication, transport, contraction, division, and other essential cell functions. Lucidly written for the non-expert, the book is profound enough for biologists, chemists, physicists and engineers to devour.

 

Praise

Top prize - Best in ShowSociety for Technical Communication, 2003.

“An eloquent and accessible statement of a heresy that has smoldered at the fringe of orthodox biology for about 30 years” Science 293: 5530, 2001. Thomas Stossel, Harvard

“As interesting as any nonfiction book on the NY Times bestseller list” Pharm. Res. 18: 1804-1805. Kinam Park, Purdue

“I was completely sucked in upon reading the first page. This is such great stuff. I found myself ‘making time’ to read it.” Erwin Vogler, Penn State University.

 

from Amazon...

5 Stars “This book is heretical and courageous, and - if it can escape burning - may become a seminal landmark in our understanding of living systems.” Stuart R. Hameroff

5 Stars “An unorthodox conceptual view is put forth that attempts to globally explain how the living cell functions. We are rewarded by the unparalleled joy of feeling part of a discovery itself. This intellectual journey is well worth every minute. And, who knows, Pollack might be right, too!” Miklos Kellermayer

5 Stars “I applaud the work. I recommend it as required reading for just about everybody: the writing style makes it accessible for even high school students, but it is not too plebian to challenge even a professor or researcher in the area.” Jacob Hantla

 

Cells, Gels and the Engines of Life: A New, Unifying Approach to Cell Function was honored with two awards in 2003. “Distinguished Award,” awarded by the Puget Sound Society of Technical Communication. Cells, Gels also received that society’s, “Best in Show” award.
