An American Book Award finalist, Guy Murchie's The Seven Mysteries of Life "embraces all the important information about everything humanity needs to know for continuance aboard planet Earth, or anywhere else in the universe" (Buckminster Fuller).

"All life in all worlds"—this was the object of the author's seventeen-year quest for knowledge and discovery, culminating in this book. In a manner unmistakably his own, Murchie delves into the interconnectedness of all life on the planet and of such fields as biology, geology, sociology, mathematics, and physics to provide an astonishing journey into the essence of science, philosophy, and inspiration.

"Murchie has a remarkably comprehensive knowledge of science and writes about it with the gifts of a poet plus a highly personal, visionary, mystical spirit."—Wall Street Journal

"A good book to take to a desert island as sole companion, so rich is it in knowledge and insight."—New York Times best-selling author May Sarton
