Waterstones Says

Hailing the life-changing discovery of the cell by Robert Hooke and Antonie van Leeuwenhoek, this rigorously researched and riveting scientific history from the author of The Emperor of All Maladies mixes biology with character study to brilliant effect.

Longlisted for the Baillie Gifford Prize for Non-Fiction 2023

The discovery of this vital form led to a transformation in medicine but also in our understanding of ourselves - not as bodies or machines but as ecosystems. It has also given us the power to treat a vast array of mortal maladies...and even to create new kinds of human altogether.

Rich with stories of scientists, doctors and the patients whose lives may be saved by their work, The Song of the Cell is a stunning ode to the building blocks of life and the cutting-edge science harnessing their power for the better.
