The book covers the possible story of emergence of life and its subsequent evolution, emphasizing the necessary evolutionary step negotiation of a common language set which kept all inhabitants in the biosphere together, ensuring a basic level of understanding among them. The book focuses on protocols of communication (both genetic and epigenetic) representing norms shared and understood across the whole biosphere, enabling a plethora of holobiotic relationships. Cooperative nature of organismal evolution and epigenetic processes as a major force in evolution are also covered. Topics discussed are illustrated in detail on selected casuistics.

Anton Markos (1949), is a biologist at the Charles University in Prague, Czechia (department of philosophy and history of science). He works and teaches cell biology, theoretical and evolutionary biology. His books in English are Readers of the Book of Life (2002) and (with co-authors) Life as Its Own Designer (2009). Recently published papers include subjects such as in epigenetics, biosemiotics, language metaphor of life, and morphogenesis of bacterial colonies. Jana Svorcova (1982) studied both philosophy and theoretical and evolutionary biology at Charles University, and currently works at the same department as Anton Markos, her former supervisor. Svorcova teaches theoretical biology and publishes papers concerning non-genetic inheritance, evo-devo and philosophy of biology.
