Life is the biggest mystery there is. There are so many questions, so many things we really don’t know that it can be overwhelming. But sometimes, just sometimes, we can find the answers to the biggest mysteries in life, in the smallest organisms alive.
Believe it or not, the answer to many of our questions reside on the cells. Yes, these small things that compose the whole world, are the answer to each and every one of our single questions.
And this isn’t anything new; scientist have known this for quite some years now. They know many of the answers to life itself lies in the cells that surround us, that make us and everything we are.
In How We Live and Why We Die: the secret lives of cells, author Lewis Wolpert explains how this tiny little organism control everything we do from the moment we are born to the moment we die, everything is related to them.
The truth is, this book takes on quite a big topic to be discussed in just one edition. Still, author Lewis Walpert does an outstanding job explaining such complex theories and studies, managing to do so in a much easier to read, friendly way that everyone can understand.
He also takes a look at how to live on earth literally started from one single cell living alone, and how through different processes this single-cell transformed itself into becoming what we are today: A whole society made solemnly by cells and living by them day by day, even if we don’t truly notice it.
As you read through the book, you slowly start to realize how incredible the cells in and around us are, and how most of the things (if not absolutely everything we do) is indeed connected, influencing what we do, how we act and how our bodies react to certain situations.
Understanding how cells work and why they are the secret of life takes quite some time and some profound research. However, you have to start someway, and this is how you do so.
This book is perfect for anyone who might be interested in the science field and all things related. The best thing is, you don’t need to have much knowledge on the matter, this book will serve you as a short but beneficial guide into the world of cells.
