Book: What is Life? How Chemistry Becomes Biology

I bought this book thinking that it was about chemistry and biology. But, I was wrong. This book is more of a philosophical approach to science (chemistry&biology). So, if you are looking for a simple answer to the question in the title, you will probably be disappointed. For the first 160 pages, the author lays down the basics of science and research and only in the final chapter he tries to answer the main question.

If you don't have a biology or chemistry background, it might be a heavy book. But, for the people who know a little bit about them and who are interested in fundamental questions, it is a good book.
