'Tis is a substantial scientific biography covering four years of the life of Krebs ... There is an enormous amount of detail and the book will be of interest mainly to scientific historians.'
Aslib Book Guide, Vol. 59, No. 6, June 1994 'This is the second and concluding volume of Holmes' biography of Hans Krebs ... a remarkable ad detailed account of a significant period in the development of biochemistry, reflected in the work of a major "architect."'
Nathaniel I. Berlin, University of Miami, JAMA, Vol. 271, No. 14, 1994 'This is not only a study of Krebs's research, it is also a comprehensive biography of Krebs's personal as well as scientific life ... These two volumes represent an extraordinary achievement, as a biography of a man, living in a time of turmoil and upheaval, who emerged as a great scientists. The story of both the man and the science is full and rewarding. Among studies of biochemists, I know of nothing in the least comparable with Holmes's achievement here, in
its depth and breadth.'
