`Life Finds a Way weaves a coherent and compelling narrative about how nature achieves creativity. Not only that, we also learn how to cultivate creativity in our own lives.' -- George Dyson, author of <i>Turing's Cathedral</i> `Finding surprising convergences between evolving species and an active imagination, Wagner persuasively argues that human inventiveness is a reflection not just of human nature but of nature itself.' -- Anthony Brandt, composer and co-author of <i>The Runaway Species</i> `Andreas Wagner has again cut through to the heart of a vital question. The notion that genomes are set up to explore, through trial and error, in the hope of leaping across the adaptive landscape to new peaks is a fresh concept. Wagner draws out fascinating parallels with the way innovation works in human society.' -- Matt Ridley, author of <i>The Evolution of Everything</i> and the forthcoming <i>How Innovation Works</i>
