“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.
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.
