Praise for Frank Ryan:

'Extremely well written ... Frank Ryan has the page-turning and spine-chilling ability of a good novelist'
Sunday Telegraph

'Ryan is very good at making technical matters comprehensible to the lay reader, but more impressive still is the away he conveys the intellectual excitement and elation of scientific discovery'
Literary Review

`Dr Ryan writes well in a difficult technical field, weaving the technicalities of scientific history, medicine, molecular biology and evolution into the human narratives ... Very readable and disturbing'
New York Times
