A Brief History of Life: From the Origin of Life to the End of the Universe is the first part of a two book popular science series.
Taking the NASA definition of life as his starting point, the author searches for the vital ingredient that differentiates living and none-living things.
His wide ranging search takes him from the start of the universe to its very end, and along the way he offers a tantalizing glimpse of how life is extremely fragile yet stubbornly tenacious.
This downloadable PDF is a full PDF of the paperback version complete with endnotes and references.
“So broad in scope, everything from the big bang to the afterlife!” (Professor Gerald Joyce, co-author of the NASA definition of life).
Available as a printable or downloadable PDF or as an eBook in EPUB and MOBI formats.
