''Life on the Edge: The Coming of Age of Quantum Biology'' Professor Jim Al-Khalili, Professor Johnjoe McFadden

Life is the most extraordinary phenomenon in the known universe; but how does it work? Even in this age of cloning and synthetic biology, the remarkable truth remains: nobody has ever made anything living entirely out of dead material. Are we missing a vital ingredient in its creation? Bringing together first-hand experience of science at the cutting edge of science with unparalleled gifts of exposition and explanation, Jim Al-Khalili and Johnjoe Macfadden reveal the hitherto missing ingredient to be quantum mechanics and the strange phenomena that lie at the heart of this explosive new field.
First chapter..
