Cambridge MA: The Belknap Press, 2005. Small octavo, colour photographs, fine copy in dustwrapper.
The book reveals a hidden world where light is manipulated by animals and humans and put to remarkable uses - unlocking the secrets of the human brain, conquering dreaded diseases and perhaps someday linking minds and machines. The authors deftly lead the reader through a complex story at the interface of biology and physics - and into the realm of wonder on the frontiers of scientific endeavour. Also available in paperback [stock id 26005].
