From the cover: “For the first time, scientists are beginning to see into the incredibly complex arrangements of atoms and molecules which underlie the phenomena of life. Among pioneering explorers of this new territory, a group of men at Cambridge — of whom the author is one — have played a central part. No fewer than four British scientists, including the author, received Nobel Prizes for this work. The Thread of Life is a first-hand account for the layman of this most exciting development in science. It leads us into a world as complex as life itself but Dr Kendrew is an exceptionally lucid guide.”
