Summary "How a cell becomes a personality is the theme of this book. It is written for young people in the early stages of their preparation for teaching. To those who pause to look and reflect upon it no phenomenon in nature approaches the wonder of the growth of a human being from a single cell through ever-changing postures, proportions, capacities, interests, needs, circumstances. Babies Noah, Socrates, Michelangelo, Napoleon, Bach, Lincoln, Hitler, Einstein were very much alike. They cooed and howled in their cradles, walked at about age one. What factors cause one cell to develop into a thoughtful, creative, altruistic member of the human race and another to become a talented demon who terrifies the world is the problem posed, and not fully answered, by this book"--Preface.
