… on the Association-Induction Hypothesis (shortly
after its publication):
there must be some very comprehensive and basic principles at the
molecular level that underlie and illuminate all the special manifestations
of living systems. Ling offers no less than such a general molecular
theory of life phenomena."

"At a time
when we look forward to the merging of the physical and biological
sciences, this is a most stimulating book, distinguished by a
bold and inquisitive attitude on the one hand, and careful experimental
methods on the other."

strikes me as being one of the most important and advanced contributions
to the understanding of the structure of the living system which
I have seen during the last 10 or 20 years."

work is genuinely revolutionary. The thesis is full of penetrating
insights in the inner workings of the cell, offering a dramatic
alternative to the "conventional wisdom" of current views. Ling
demonstrates that many textbook axioms of cell function are incompatible
with evidence and logic, and goes on to produce a richly detailed
construct that shows promise of being largely correct. It is both
a fascinating read and a monumental contribution to science."

new book arrives in perhaps the last hour to provide the true
historical aspect of the search for understanding of the living
cell... a compact description of all the elements of the Association-Induction
Hypothesis with only the most compelling experimental supports
behind each component...embedded in an extensive (and to our best
knowledge, fully complete) historical background in such a way
that despite its scientific authenticity, the volume appears as
highly colorful and enjoyable to read."

Ph.D. through his lifetime of brilliant research projects, (demonstrates)
that present day physiology teaching on the cell's functioning
is in error and thus leads to faulty medical paradigms resulting
in slow or no progress in disease resolution. (Ling's) keen insight
demonstrate(s)... how the cell does function, thereby producing
numerous formerly undiscerned phenomena which, when searched for,
are found and lead to new and wonderful medical discoveries, such
as the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) procedures."
