“Signature in the Cell is a defining work in the discussion of life’s origins and the question of whether life is a product of unthinking matter or of an intelligent mind. For those who disagree with ID, the powerful case Meyer presents cannot be ignored in any honest debate. For those who may be sympathetic to ID, on the fence, or merely curious, this book is an engaging, eye-opening, and often eye-popping read” — American Spectator Named one of the top books of 2009 by the Times Literary Supplement (London), this controversial and compelling book from Dr. Stephen C. Meyer presents a convincing new case for intelligent design (ID), based on revolutionary discoveries in science and DNA. Along the way, Meyer argues that Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution as expounded in The Origin of Species did not, in fact, refute ID. If you enjoyed Francis Collins’s The Language of God, you’ll find much to ponder—about evolution, DNA, and intelligent design—in Signature in the Cell.
This is the second book that I have read by Dr. Meyer. My first introduction was Darwin’s Doubt (which I also suggest). Though I am a layman in scientific research and work, I feel that this book can be grasped by most, if not all readers. Some parts are very dense, but the information given is highly useful. This will continue to be a reference book for me in my studies of ID theory and its applicability in defense of design in nature.
With the likes of Dawkins, Kraus and all of the Neo-Darwinist Atheists using incredibly illogical and unscientific arguments, this work slams the door on blind random unguided processes with mutation and transfer yielding the required information necessary to create life. Krause's argument "from nothing comes something" is utterly fraudulent coming from someone who considers himself the consummate physicist and scientist. This book sets forth the single greatest argument for Mind in the beginning as the a priori to life.
Bravo Stephen Myers!!! I truly believe This book finally gave Christopher Hitchens the "Hitch Slap" he's so long deserved, even if posthumously!!! Thank You Stephen.

Signature in a Cell
This book is as good a survey of origin-of-life research as anyone can ask. It covers the ground comprehensively and quotes widely from prominent experts in the field.
I noticed earlier that a number of reviewers attack the author, with no mention of the book's content. A sure sign of an ax to grind.
