About this book

Since winning the Nobel prize for Chemistry in 1967 for his work on reaction kinetics, Manfred Eigen has concentrated on the origins and evolution of primitive forms of life, testing his theories on a series of complex biological models. This book explains his work to chemists, biologists, and interested general readers, particularly his views on the links between chemistry, primordial biochemistry, and the emergence of the first cell.
