Fred "Steady State Cosmology" Hoyle is hardly the paragon of scientific credibility I'm afraid. That may well be assigning guilt by association to a book I haven't read, but when the author is all I know about it I'm not jumping up and down to read it.

Trust me, he is very good (you have to be pretty darn good to propose panspermia and be taken seriously). He did afterall win the Crafoord Prize, which is the Nobel equivalent in fields not covered by the Nobel. Many in the evolution field do not agree with him, but no one takes his arguments lightly.
