Summary
"Biology today promises everything from better foods or cures for common diseases to the alarming prospect of redesigning life itself Looking at the organisms that have made all this possible gives us a new way of understanding how we got here - and perhaps of thinking about where we're going. Instead of a history of which great scientists had which great ideas, this story of passionflowers and hawkweeds, of zebra fish and viruses, oilers a bird's (or rodent's) eye view of the work that makes science possible."--Jacket
