This book is based on an in-depth conversation between Howard Burton and Nick Lane, Professor of Evolutionary Biochemistry at University College London and bestselling author. After an inspiring story of Nick Lane’s career path, this wide-ranging conversation covers his bioenergetic view of early, evolutionary history, the origin of life and how all complex life is composed of a very particular cell type that we all share, and more.

This carefully-edited book includes an introduction, The Big Picture, and questions for discussion at the end of each chapter:

I. A Long and Winding Road - Nick goes round the houses

II. Structuring Energy - Cells, membranes and a counterintuitive mechanism

III. Hydrothermal Vents - More than just chemistry

IV. Simulational Challenges - Making your own hydrothermal vent

V. Synoptic Justifications - Philosophers wanted

VI. Becoming Complex - From prokaryotes to eukaryotes

VII. Marvellous Mitochondria - Insights from a metabolic worldview

VIII. Open Questions - From the origin of life to consciousness
