About this book

A world-renowned biologist takes us to the forefront of science as he proposes a revolutionary way of thinking about life. By applying information theory to recent discoveries in molecular biology, Loewenstein seeks answers to ancient riddles such as how does a living organism manage to do what nonliving things cannot do - bring forth and maintain all cellular order against the unrelenting, disordering pressures of the universe?
