Inspiring book for high school student

  1. Jul 9, 2009 #1
    I am trying to find a book that may be related to biology and has some sort of academic underpinning (perhaps something mathematical).

    This is for a high school student with little background. So I am looking for a very inspiring sort of book.

    If anything comes to mind, please respond.

    I like this one.

    Coming to Life: How Genes Drive Development by Christiane Nusslein-Volhard (there should be an umlaut over that u). Copyright 2006 Kales Press, Inc. ISBN 0-9670076-7-4

    Written by a Nobel laureate for an interested lay audience. This describes some of the biochemical mechanisms behind pattern development in a developing embryo.
