Reviews

From the reviews:

“This collection of seven chapters is a good overview of various aspects of chiral asymmetry, its origins and propagation, and its relationship to biomolecular asymmetry. … The readers will find this book thought-provoking.” (Dilip Kondepudi, Chirality, Issue 7, June, 2014)

“It constitutes a step forward from previous books on the subject by covering the origin and evolution of chirality through different scales and approaches. … The book benefits from many colour illustrations, together with comprehensive lists of references at the end of each chapter that will be very helpful for further detailed study of the various topics. … I strongly recommend it to the intended readership of graduate students and researchers in academia and industry.” (Laurence D. Barron, Origins of Life and Evolution of Biospheres, February, 2014)
