This volume brings together an immense amount of material bearing on the general subject of "information theory," but widely dispersed over numerous not-too-well-integrated topics. These range from virus replication to logical calculus, from Shannon's theorem to information storage in nerve cells. An excellent brief summary by Gerard helps somewhat in clarifying the total vista.
