The Vital Question

Comments and mentions from HN threads:

Ask HN: What was the best book you read in 2016?

ChuckMcM: It connected a lot of interesting dots and provided for me what I consider the first plausible process by which life could arise out of the soup. There is an interesting twist about the 'one thing' that, had it not happened, we'd probably still be separate bacteria cells.

Ask HN: What books changed the way you think about almost everything?

misiti3780: Made me realize how lucky we as humans and complex cellular beings are to even exist.
