I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in science; chemistry; evolution; or life
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
This book provided some new insight into the miraculous development of life and the concept of 'Self-Assembly' was captivating
Any additional comments?
FYI -- I listed to the first three chapters almost a half-dozen times just so that I could take notes-

A clear culmination of the knowledge and principles behind our understanding of embryology and biology in general. Easily understood by anyone with an amatuer grounding in biology, but go slow on the heavy parts, if you miss something you'll miss the foundations for later concepts. Well worth the time to take it in.

Facing retirement soon and working in a different field, I nevertheless enjoyed this thoroughly and will need to listen again. I'm considering buying the hard copy for the illustrations. Will be a boon to the undergraduate and extends ones perspective in what used to be a dull collection of facts and in my day, hard work, especially when you need to wade through an Embryology text book on your own.

The complex yet simple morphogenesis of an embryo is beautiful.
I accidentally found this book on audible prioir to starting an MSc in human anatomy and dissection last yr, with an Embryology module. I wasnt looking for such a book....was just golden luck to find it.
Over the last 7mths I've worked my way through whilst also reading along with the book and it has linked comprehensively into my studies.
I was hooked following a quote by Lewis Wolpert at the start of the gastrulation chapter and this audiobook is the single reason Ill be applying for PhDs in the field this Sept.
Be prepared, if like me you have absolutely no prior knowledge on the subject, to relisten and re-read paragraphs and whole chapters. Its been a slow journey through the whole book. But I became very invested in the "story" of the embryo. 100% full recommendation.
