Scientist and medical doctor, the late Lewis Thomas wrote poetically and engagingly about the wonderments of the physical world around us. In LIVES OF A CELL, he uses the structure of the cell as a metaphor to examine the interconnectedness of humans and all other living things. Edward Lewis's moderate pace and brief, but distinct pauses between sentences help keep listeners in tune with Lewis's ideas as they unfold. However, he reads some of the long scientific words too fast for lay listeners. And his habit of ending many sentences on a rising note means that the listener may not always know when an idea is finished. A fine, though not great, performance of a great book. A.C.S.
