      Fundamentally changed my understanding of cell biology.

      It presents very provocative ideas- such as, there are no ion channels really, its all effect of phase transition and the way water is structured in cells. Author is a reputed scientist, and he cites papers to substantiate the claims. The book is written in a very sketchy manner. I am no expert, so cannot verify the veracity of these claims. I am yet to see a serious rebuttal or counter argument. Certainly worth reading and pondering over.

      Amazing book that gives an entirely different view of biology as we know it. This complex subject is discussed in a very accessible way.

      Had some interesting ideas. But some of it seemed unsubstantiated.
