Wonderful in depth survey of current thinking on the origin of life on Earth, as well as the search for life in the Solar System and beyond. Peter Ward makes accessible a complex and wide ranging field of research. Very fair and readable. Great use of humor, personal stories and humility to help keep the reader involved. Brings the scientific process to life.
