From the way our brain thinks to how our body fights germs, the wonders of human life are fundamentally about how our cells and tissues interact. This book is a tour de force about how this communication happens. Examined with passion and insight, a wondrous and important story unfolds about how the human body really works above and beyond the level of individual genes and cells.—Daniel M. Davis, author of The Compatibility Gene

The scholarship in the book is truly impressive. The interviews are revealing portraits of accomplished scientists. The writing style is lucid and purged of jargon so as to be intelligible to non-scientists. All in all this is a valuable and eminently readable record of the birth and development of a field that has had a dramatic impact on human health.—Scott Durum, Center for Cancer Research, National Cancer Institute
