About the Author
Dr Moff Betts has a practice on the Welsh Borders. He is currently ship's doctor on board MV Invincible with the team attempting to land on Rockall in June 2005. http://www.therockalltimes.co.uk/rockall-ho/2005-team.html
"... short and witty... rich and artful..." - The Lancet "Descriptions of DNA, the cell, embryology, and the heart are curiously interspersed with the ancient humours, the odd numerology of bodily proportions, and eastern systems of chakras and kundalini. Betts fosters a sense of overall connectedness despite chasms of scale and religion. I felt I was reading a distillation of ancient alchemical tomes, a 19th-century Matt Ridley, or perhaps even Paracelsus for Dummies, and while the text is beguilingly simple, it is neither dumbed down nor stripped of scientific vocabulary" - Noah Raizman in The Lancet"
