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)
