    In the tradition of Carl Sagan, Rachel Carson, and Stephen Hawking, a new voice has emerged with the unique gift of translating cutting-edge science into clear, accessible language: Dr. Bruce Lipton. With The Wisdom of Your Cells, this internationally recognized authority on cellular biology takes listeners on an in-depth exploration into the microscopic world, where new discoveries and research are revolutionizing the way we understand life, evolution, and consciousness.

    Overall

    As a PhD myself and working as I am in the field of cell biology, I have to say that this is the worst book I've ever finished. And I did so only to try to measure how far the author would go with the nonsense.

    He misleads the readers (listeners) with a few scientific facts, overextending outrageously the implications and presenting them in a way that makes it as if he were in a noble crusade against the evil establishment of science.

    He shows an alarming lack of understanding in the biology of the cell membrane, signal transduction and epigenetics while presenting them as if he were his sole discoverer. These are in fact current topics of research as any serious scientist in these fields can attest, and are not taboo or dogmatic truths as he seems to think.

    The conclusions he draws from his (very) basic experiments and "revolutionary" thinking are enough to make any real scientist feel dirty just by reading them. No peer reviewed journal would ever publish something like this, and not because they are part of a conspiracy, but because it makes no sense and can't stand up to scrutiny.
    It's as if in trying to explain gravitation he comes to the theory that it's invisible goblins that pull things downwards, and then as proof he drops a stone and says "see, those were the invisible goblins in action", yes the facts match the theory, but that doesn't make it correct.

    There is no need for far fetched theories, all is needed is careful honest research in this complex field, but it seems that's something Mr. Lipton can't be bothered with.
