Media reviews

All that has happened in the brief history of astrobiology is but a prelude to some of the most important future discoveries in the history of science and philosophy. This book is the only place where you can find out what really happened in the struggle to make astrobiology respectable. - Frank Drake, senior scientist and director of the Center for the Study of Life in the Universe, SETI Institute "This is a wonderful book by two of the best historians of biology in the business." - Michael Ruse, author of Darwin and Design: Does Evolution Have a Purpose?"
