About the Book

The Wonder of Life takes you from Earth's beginning and describes the events that preceded man and carries you along the path of man's education. This came through wars, then religion, and always through the silent killers of man as disease became one of the major carriers of education as well as death. You will journey through the battles with the silent killers and understand how man went from a defensive mode to one of the aggressor with the invention of the microscope. Follow the progress of the wins over the Staff infections, to the use of penicillin during the war and then the defeat of Polio; always in the search of what made man tick. This carries him through the discovery of DNA, the genetic code, AIDS, the human genome and to today's great hope of the use of stem cells to correct for the body's malfunction of its organs. It's an exciting story told in a novel manner for the layman to understand.
