Life On the Edge


Although the subject is very interesting, the attempts by Johnjoe McFadden and Jim Al-Khalili to make it readable for those without a scientific background makes it hard to follow at times.

McFadden and Al-Khalili  appeared worried that they would not attract or lose readers if the focus was too detailed quantum biology. What I did find enjoyable about the book was that they devoted each chapter to a particular topic rather than mixing them as I have run across in other similar types of science related books. While making it an easier read, it lacked the punch of other books.

I recommend this book for those who have an interest in the subject matter, but have had limited exposure to the subject.

I received this book through the Blogging for Books website courtesy of Broadway books, the publisher. It was with the understanding that I would post a review on Blogging for Books, my book review site, Goodreads, Amazon and Barnes and Noble. I also posted it to my Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google Plus pages.

I requested this book as I found the subject matter to be of interest. It is the first book by Johnjoe McFadden and Jim Al-Khalili that I have read.
