    One of the greatest scientific feats of our era is the astonishing progress made in understanding biology-the intricate machinery of life-a progress to which the period we are living in right now has contributed the most.As you read these words, researchers are delving ever deeper into the workings of living systems, turning their discoveries into new medical treatments, improved methods of growing food, and innovative products that are already changing the world.

    If you could sum up Biology: The Science of Life in three words, what would they be?

    Science is awesome


    What about Professor Stephen Nowicki’s performance did you like?

    This could be terribly dry material in other hands, but Nowicki is a very good speaker, and makes things seem alive.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I'm listening to it on daily walks. Today I listened to the episodes about the discovery of DNA, however, and it was so gripping I walked an extra half mile to get to the end.


    Any additional comments?

    This is really helping me with the biology class I'm taking. Everything is explained thoroughly, but Nowicki doesn't get bogged down with details that aren't pertinent at the moment. I've been recommending this series very highly to my classmates!
