In The Fifth Miracle, physicist and writer Paul Davies confronts one of science's great outstanding mysteries -- the origin of life. Davies builds on contemporary scientific discoveries and theories to address the question: What, exactly, is life? Is it the inevitable by-product of physical laws, as many scientists maintain, or an almost miraculous accident? Are we alone in the universe, or will life emerge on all Earth-like planets? And if there is life elsewhere in the universe, is it preordained to evolve toward greater complexity and intelligence?
