PETER DOHERTY’s ability to span the gap between the most abstract basic science and the everyday world is once again evident in this, his third popular science paperback. Put it on your Christmas gift list. It will intrigue the nerdiest high school student, stimulate the most militant environmentalist and give pleasure to anyone who has worked in the biological sciences or medicine during the past half century. Read it yourself too, for the informal asides about the ideas and people the author has encountered in his Nobel Prize-winning career in Australia and the United States.
