REVIEW ✓ The Vital uestion Fe single celled organisms such as bacteria evolved without changing their basic form Then on just one occasion in four billion years they made the jump to complexity All complex life from mushrooms to man shares puzzling features such as sex which are unknown in bacteria How and why did this radical transformation happenThe answer Lane argues lies in energy all life on Earth lives off a voltage with the strength of a lightning bolt Building on the pil. Have you ever wondered what life is Not in the philosophical complexity of how hard it is to lead one but what actually defines life in a scientific sense Ever tried to comprehend the complexity of living wondered on what makes life what concept or part it is that makes you say an organism is alive or dead In the general sense if you stop breathing you are considered dead Okay you breathe you walk you talk But what is it that makes you breathe autonomously in the first place If you have ever thought in these lines and are amazed by life on earth this is the perfect book to seek out answers for all the aforementioned nagging uestionsThe book starts with when the life is believed to have come into existence in the first place The Precambrian explosion where the first life form arose 35 to 4 billion years back These were bacteria and archaea which monopolized for a whopping 2 billion years Then the earth s atmosphere only comprised of carbon nitrogen sulphur and iron Then there was The Great Oxidation Event which led to that rare event endosymbioses between a bacteria and an archaea that the complex life a eukaryote as we see now arose the endosymbiont turning out to be the mitochondria in our cells Scientists have still not been able to reason out for this rare event but have enormous evidence to prove that this was pivotal for complex life to flourishThe author Nick Lane also beautifully explains the concept of life Our life narrows down to the interplay between energy and entropy What he calls the shopping list of life a continuous flux of carbon and energy the concoction of mineral catalysts in a compartmentalized system present in a conducive atmosphere in hydrothermal vents is supposed to have formed life Again life as an autonomous system is that always tends to increase the entropy of the system which increases the free energy available in the surroundings which is in turn consumed by organism to produce the energy currencies called ATP in mitochondria through respiration WhoaThe book also talks about what constraints on the modern eukaryote led to the proliferation of complex life The probability of a eukaryotic cell formed from the rarest of a rare event to turn out to modern humans or plants yes plants and we share a common ancestor is very low But the conditions on earth was too good to be ignored giving rise to mutations and speciation by natural selection The author also mathematically proves why it was feasible for a eukaryotic cell to evolve giving rise to a myriad kinds of species than having a monopoly of prokaryotes Then comes the part where the author talks about how sex arose why are there only 2 sexes and the evolutionary benefit of having so He gives a probable explanation for why scientists say the life anywhere else in the universe is hard to exist The conditions are just very strict and events being as improbable as it might seem Even if they do he says it must be of the way as we have on earth as endosymbioses by the process of chemiosmosis is universal in cosmic termsThe author has laid out his theories of six years of research and argues why they might be true compared to all the theories we already know He also openly accepts why his theories can be false or haven t yet been proved with enough evidence The love for the subject and his work is clearly reflected in his writingThe book with all the scientific details can be tantalizing and hard to comprehend I literally had to read almost every paragraph twice to understand the science behind his explanations That can cause a bit of a detour but I guess all that can be compensated when you realize how amazingly complex and magical life on earth is whilst reading those detailsI highly recommend this book to all science fans especially for those who are interested in the so called BIG uestions of life I felt reading the book being awestruck at every page repeatedly reading most parts to comprehend the details was all worth my time To have been evolved as an intelligent species as homo sapiens who have thrived since 200000 thousand years with renaissance industrial revolutions agriculture and all the scientific explorations over the past 500 years we are a product of a slow meticulous and intricate design of evolution who are just the new guests to our planet which is 45 billion years old We just got very lucky PS1 This book was recommended as the Best Science Book of 2015 by Bill Gates Read his review here Brief videos on the book by the awesome Joe Hanson in his Youtube channel It s okay to be smart can be found here Ruby on Rails.

REVIEW ✓ The Vital uestion The Earth teems with life in its oceans forests skies and cities Yet there’s a black hole at the heart of biology We do not know why complex life is the way it is or for that matter how life first began In The Vital uestion award winning author and biochemist Nick Lane radically reframes evolutionary history putting forward a solution to conundrums that have puzzled generations of scientistsFor two and a half billion years from the very origins of li. This is a bravura hit you between the eyes popular science book which were it not for a couple of failings would not only be five star but uite possibly the best popular science book of the year so farNick Lane succeeds on two levels One is opening the eyes of a relatively ignorant reader on the subject of biology like me to the sheer magnificent complexity of biological mechanisms I was aware for instance of mitochondria as the power sources of eukaryotic cells but hadn t a clue just how complex the molecular machines that function across their boundary to the wider cell and inside each mitochondrion were It is truly mind boggling and wonderful At one point Lane comments with raised virtual eyebrows on the number of physicists now working in biology but that s not at all surprising when it becomes plain how much of what goes on is down to pure physics whether it s pumping protons passing electrical charges or uantum tunnelling Lane does resort to the odd exclamation mark normally frowned on by writers but for once it seems entirely justifiedThe other impressive aspect of the book might be less familiar even to some biologists when Lane explores the origins of life no longer from an organic soup but now thought to be primarily from water and carbon dioxide how the energy reuirements of life can sometimes tell us than genetics about the way living cells turned out how our complex cells seem to have developed initially from the embedding of bacteria into another prokaryotes this time archaea And that s just the start in a complex ride that involves changing membranes from one kind to another the spontaneous formation of a nucleus the changing nature of DNA and far It even explains why practically all eukaryotes like us have sexual reproduction Perhaps most surprising is that the earliest common ancestor of eukaryotes seems to have already had most of these complex mechanisms and structures for reasons that again Lane makes very plausible It s fascinating and really changes the idea of how various kinds of living cells may have come into beingSo what s the downside The writing is rather repetitious It s amusing that early on Lane refers to this as a short book saying that it is as short as it could possibly be to get the point across But it is in fact a middle sized book that could have been significantly short and to the point with some of the repetition particularly in the first few chapters taken outMore significantly I think the book suffers from Feynman s ague when the great American physicist was involved in biology he bemoaned the vast uantity of labels that had to be learned to get anywhere and I found there were plenty of pages where I didn t really understand what Lane was talking about because I had either never come across or had already forgotten the explanation of yet another tedious term The book really could have benefited from a co author who wasn t a biologist to say you ve lost me ever few pages or in some cases every few lines I got the overall gist but I felt I was missing out on some of the finer points and did skip a few pages where it was all getting too much for meDespite those misgivings though there is so much to discover in this book I would recommend it for either of my two reasons for liking it alone but taken together they make a potent package that will truly bring out the sense of wonder as only good science can Comic Book Lettering: The Comicraft Way just how complex the molecular machines that function across their boundary to the wider cell and inside each mitochondrion were It is truly mind boggling and wonderful At one point Lane comments with raised virtual eyebrows on the number of physicists now working in biology but that s not at all surprising when it becomes plain how much of what goes on is down to pure physics whether it s pumping protons passing electrical charges or uantum tunnelling Lane does resort to the odd exclamation mark normally frowned on by writers but for once it seems entirely Bead Crochet Jewelry: An Inspired Journey Through 27 Designs justifiedThe other impressive aspect of the book might be less familiar even to some biologists when Lane explores the origins of life no longer from an organic soup but now thought to be primarily from water and carbon dioxide how the energy reuirements of life can sometimes tell us than genetics about the way living cells turned out how our complex cells seem to have developed initially from the embedding of bacteria into another prokaryotes this time archaea And that s Supercute Animals and Pets: Christopher Hart's Draw Manga Now! just the start in a complex ride that involves changing membranes from one kind to another the spontaneous formation of a nucleus the changing nature of DNA and far It even explains why practically all eukaryotes like us have sexual reproduction Perhaps most surprising is that the earliest common ancestor of eukaryotes seems to have already had most of these complex mechanisms and structures for reasons that again Lane makes very plausible It s fascinating and really changes the idea of how various kinds of living cells may have come into beingSo what s the downside The writing is rather repetitious It s amusing that early on Lane refers to this as a short book saying that it is as short as it could possibly be to get the point across But it is in fact a middle sized book that could have been significantly short and to the point with some of the repetition particularly in the first few chapters taken outMore significantly I think the book suffers from Feynman s ague when the great American physicist was involved in biology he bemoaned the vast uantity of labels that had to be learned to get anywhere and I found there were plenty of pages where I didn t really understand what Lane was talking about because I had either never come across or had already forgotten the explanation of yet another tedious term The book really could have benefited from a co author who wasn t a biologist to say you ve lost me ever few pages or in some cases every few lines I got the overall gist but I felt I was missing out on some of the finer points and did skip a few pages where it was all getting too much for meDespite those misgivings though there is so much to discover in this book I would recommend it for either of my two reasons for liking it alone but taken together they make a potent package that will truly bring out the sense of wonder as only good science can

REVIEW ✓ The Vital uestion Lars of evolutionary theory Lane’s hypothesis draws on cutting edge research into the link between energy and cell biology in order to deliver a compelling account of evolution from the very origins of life to the emergence of multicellular organisms while offering deep insights into our own lives and deathsBoth rigorous and enchanting The Vital uestion provides a solution to life’s vital uestion why are we as we are and indeed why are we here at a. A gorgeous book so clear and well written Worth reading for the description of the ATP synthase alone I wish science writing this good had been around when I was at high school If you re considering reading it basically it s about the importance of mitochondria Lane s ideas got super fascinating in chapter 9 and if you don t currently have time to read all 305 pages of Lane s book and you know a little about cell biology already I rec picking up the book just to read this chapter alone And if you don t have time for a single chapter at the very climax of the book is a brief discussion of the deep sea parakaryote discovered in 2010 which really encapsulates his key takeaway points on endosymbionts and the evolution of complex cells and there s a very short excerpt from the book just on this topic here which you really shouldn t miss This was my first book by Lane but it won t be my last Microsoft Access 2016 Intermediate Quick Reference Guide - Windows Version (Cheat Sheet of Instructions, Tips & Shortcuts - Laminated Card) just to read this chapter alone And if you don t have time for a single chapter at the very climax of the book is a brief discussion of the deep sea parakaryote discovered in 2010 which really encapsulates his key takeaway points on endosymbionts and the evolution of complex cells and there s a very short excerpt from the book The Painted Art Journal: 24 Projects for Creating Your Visual Narrative just on this topic here which you really shouldn t miss This was my first book by Lane but it won t be my last
