The origins of intelligent life

In his ambitious book Life Through Time and Space, Wallace Arthur tack­les an extraordinarily difficult set of topics. What is the origin and fate of the universe? How did life, and eventually intelligent life, come into existence on Earth? How does a fertilized human egg trans­form into a complex person with only DNA to guide development?
