Críticas:

This is a science book that doesn't cheat: the structure is logical, the writing is witty, and the hard questions are tackled head on (Tim Radford Guardian)

Original and awe-inspiring ... an exhilarating tour of some of the most profound and important ideas in biology (Michael Le Page New Scientist)

Excellent and imaginative and, similar to life itself, the book is full of surprises ... a fascinating book for anyone interested in life and evolution, and how these discoveries were made (Nature)

Life Ascending earns its place on the bookshelf of every biology teacher - and anyone else interested in how we all got here. (James Kingsland Guardian)

an absolute joy...Dr Nick Lane employs a clarity of thought and an adroitness of expression that allows the reader to easily navigate his enviable breadth of knowledge. A breadth of knowledge that never scrimps on detail whilst delivering logic and inspiration in equal measure. The very definition of a 'must read' for anyone that has ever marvelled at the complexity of life (Laboratory News)

If Charles Darwin sprang from his grave, I would give him this fine book to bring him up to speed. (Matt Ridley)

Lane brings science alive with the kind of beautiful prose that turns a book full of interesting information into a book you simply cannot put down. (Amanda Gefter New Scientist)

Nick Lane is one of the most exciting science writers of our time. His book...reads like a smooth chronicle, has great subject matter and is well argued. (Steve Connor Independent)

With its vast scope, page-turning revelations and elegant prose, Nick Lane's Life Ascending is everything one could hope for in a science book (Robert Matthews Daily Telegraph)

Reseña del editor:

Winner of the 2010 Royal Society Prize for science books

Powerful new research methods are providing fresh and vivid insights into the makeup of life. Comparing gene sequences, examining the atomic structure of proteins and looking into the geochemistry of rocks have all helped to explain creation and evolution in more detail than ever before. Nick Lane uses the full extent of this new knowledge to describe the ten greatest inventions of life, based on their historical impact, role in living organisms today and relevance to current controversies. DNA, sex, sight and consciousnesses are just four examples.

Lane also explains how these findings have come about, and the extent to which they can be relied upon. The result is a gripping and lucid account of the ingenuity of nature, and a book which is essential reading for anyone who has ever questioned the science behind the glories of everyday life.
