This book has surfaced through and is based upon the One on One/Maximum science Mag Rack television series, which endeavoured to open up the world of science through a selection of interviews. Adam Hart-Davis therefore, a TV personality and a man who not only loves science but embraces it with passion, was chosen to converse with eminent scientists such as John Maynard Smith (Chapter nine - Why we bother with sex), Sir Martin Rees (Chapter twelve - Why we are in the universe/or multiverses) and Eric Lander (Chapter seven - Human genome project) about their work. Now, fourteen of those thought-provoking and informal interviews have been brought together creating a book that offers us not only the background history of the scientist being interviewed but also bringing the motivation and ground-breaking moments of these world leading scientists to our attention and within such frank discussion, tries to explain some of the most important and decisive questions of our age. (Kirkus UK)
