    This book is often confusing or even misleading. For example, the author doesn't differentiate clearly between a hypothesis, theory, and law and perpetuates common misunderstandings here. The explanation about defining life was confusing at best, misleading at worst. It is disappointing to see that someone with so many science-related topics published can have such deep misunderstandings in these fundamental issues in science. I did not finish the book.
