In The Lives of a Cell, Dr. Lewis Thomas opens up to the listener a universe of knowledge and perception that is perhaps not wholly unfamiliar to the research scientist; but the world he explores is also one of men and women, of complex interrelationships, old ironies, peculiar powers, and intricate languages that give identity to the alienated and direction to the dependent. This remarkable work offers a subtle, bold vision of humankind and the world around us - a sense of what gives life - from a writer who seems to draw grace and strength from the very substance of his subject, a man of wit and imagination who takes pleasure in and gives meaning to nearly everything he beholds. Lewis Thomas was Chairman of the Department of Pathology and Dean at Yale Medical School and President of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City. The Lives of a Cell won a National Book Award in 1974. Download and start listening now!

    " It has been a long time since I read this book. Perhaps I would enjoy it more now. I will put it down on the list to read again soon. His writing is rather like that of Stephen Jay Gould. "

    " If you want to see why language, ants, pheremones and buildings are pure magic, I recommend this one. Reflections on biology that approximate an understanding of god. "
