About the e-book:

The Earth teems with life: in its oceans, forests, skies and cities. Yet there’s a black gap at the coronary heart of biology. We have no idea why advanced life is the approach it’s, or, for that matter, how life first started. In The Vital Question, award-winning creator and biochemist Nick Lane radically reframes evolutionary historical past, placing ahead an answer to conundrums which have puzzled generations of scientists. For two and a half billion years, from the very origins of life, single-celled organisms reminiscent of micro organism developed with out altering their fundamental type. Then, on only one event in 4 billion years, they made the leap to complexity. All advanced life, from mushrooms to man, shares puzzling options, reminiscent of intercourse, that are unknown in micro organism. How and why did this radical transformation occur? The reply, Lane argues, lies in power: all life on Earth lives off a voltage with the energy of a lightning bolt. Building on the pillars of evolutionary principle, Lane’s speculation attracts on cutting-edge analysis into the hyperlink between power and cell biology, with a view to ship a compelling account of evolution from the very origins of life to the emergence of multicellular organisms, whereas providing deep insights into our personal lives and deaths. Both rigorous and enchanting, The Vital Question supplies an answer to life’s important query: why are we as we’re, and certainly, why are we right here in any respect?
