520    Life is the most extraordinary phenomenon in the known 
       universe; but how does it work? It is remarkable that in 
       this age of cloning and even synthetic biology, nobody has
       ever made anything living entirely out of dead material. 
       Life remains the only way to make life. Are we missing a 
       vital ingredient in its creation? Like Richard Dawkins' 
       The Selfish Gene, which provided a new perspective on 
       evolution by shifting the focus of natural selection from 
       organisms to genes, Life On The Edge alters our 
       understanding of life from cells or biomolecules to the 
       fundamental particles that drive life's dynamics. From 
       this new perspective, life makes more sense as its missing
       ingredient is revealed to be quantum mechanics and the 
       strange phenomena that lie at the heart of this most 
       mysterious of sciences.
