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.
