MEDIA REVIEWS

"A great book that is of interest to many geneticists, developmental biologists, and historians of science." (Prof. Matthew P. Scott - Stanford University)

"A wonderful compendium of Lewis' papers. Lipshitz has done an outstanding job of summarizing - and in many cases clarifying - Lewis' writings." (Prof. James F. Crow, University of Wisconsin, Madison)

"A very valuable reference for those studying developmental biology, radiation and cancer." (Dr. Susan Celniker, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, California)

"An excellent resource for understanding the emergence of developmental genetics." (Prof. Siegfried Roth, University of Koeln, Germany)

"Since the best way to become a good scientist is to understand how scientific ideas have been born and have developed, this book should be read by all graduate students in the areas of genetics, development and evolution." (Prof. Markus Noll, University of Zurich, Switzerland)
