Reviews

A superbly written explanation of how the origin of life on Earth became a question for science, and what the answer might be -- Brian Cox
One of the most eloquent and genuinely thoughtful books on science over the past decade ... You will not find a better, more balanced or up-to-date take on either the origin of life or synthetic biology ... Essential reading for anyone interested in the coming revolution, which could indeed rival the Industrial Revolution or the internet -- Nick Lane * Observer *
Prepare to be astounded. There are moments when this book is so gripping it reads like a thriller. Fascinating * Mail on Sunday *
This is a quite delightful two books in one. It is becoming increasingly clear that the 21st is the century of biology. This book is the perfect "story so far" -- Jim Al-Khalili, author of Paradox
An engaging account of both the mystery of life's origin and its impending resolution, as well as a fascinating glimpse of the impending birth of a new, synthetic biology -- Matt Ridley, author of Genome
A witty, engaging and eye-opening explanation of the basic units of life, right back to our common ancestors and on to their incredible synthetic future. The mark of a really good science book, it shows that the questions we still have are just as exciting as the answers we already know -- Dara O Briain
In this book of two halves, Rutherford tells the epic history of life on earth, and eloquently argues the case for embracing technology which allows us to become biological designers -- Alice Roberts
The perfect primer on the past and future of DNA ... Rutherford tells his stories with great brio and a disarming line in personal commentary * Guardian *
I warmly recommend Creation. Rutherford's academic background in genetics gives him a firm grasp of the intricacies of biochemistry - and he translates these superbly into clear English * Financial Times *
Fascinating ... The extraordinary science and his argument are worth every reader's scrutiny * Sunday Telegraph *
Suspenseful, erudite and thrilling * Prospect *
A fascinating glimpse into our past and future ... [Rutherford] argues persuasively against those who seek to hold back scientific progress. His illuminating book is full of optimism about what we might be able to achieve * Sunday Times *
