Summary
Most of the profound questions we will explore in our lives--evolution, global warming, stem cells--have to do with science. So do a lot of everyday things, like our ice cream melting and our coffee getting cold and our vacuum cleaner running (or not). What does our liver do when we eat a caramel? How does the horse demonstrate evolution at work? Are we really made of stardust? (Yes, we are.) In The Canon, Lewis Thomas meets Lewis Carroll in a book destined to become a modern classic--because it quenches our curiosity, sparks our interest in the world around us, reignites our childhood delight in discovering how things work, and instantly makes us smarter
