Tending Adams Garden by Irun R. Cohen

Book Description

"Tending Adam's Garden" describes and explains the way in which our immune system works from a novel perspective. The book uses metaphors and examples to bring the immune system to life and explores the fundamental miracle of nature. Written in plain language for a broad audience, this book encompasses much more than just immunology, exploring more fundamental matters such as causality, information, energy, evolution, cognition and individuality, as well as the strategy of the immune system and its role in health and disease. It includes key features such as: providing a unique perspective on the immune system from one of the keenest scientific and philosophical brains in the world; using metaphors and case histories to explore themes in an accessible manner; and written in plain language requiring no specialized vocabulary or specific scientific background in the subject.
