"... as a textbook, the book contains a lot of helpful figures... many of the older researchers (and hopefully some younger students too) will surely enjoy having all this information collected in a book which will become a kind of faithful companion. Geoff's book has enough of the required qualities to become such a friend."
Praise for the First Edition, --ORIGINS OF LIFE AND EVOLUTION OF THE BIOSPHERE
Origins of Life on the Earth and in the Cosmosis the most readable and even-handed general treatment of the problem of the origins of life since Miller and Orgel's 1974 monograph."
