I read this book when I was 7 years old. Although that was 53 years ago, time has not dimmed the excitement I felt in reading about a group of people stranded on an asteroid where evolution went in reverse at a hugely accelerated rate, about a scientist who found a way to accelerate his own evolution and evolved into a giant amoeba, about a man who couldn't stop himself from seeing everything.
There were a couple or three other stories in there as well, but I can't separate them from the thousands of other tales I have read in the intervening years.
Definitely one of the true greats of the genre and although many of the plots and concepts are well dated now, it is definitely worth a read if you can get hold of a copy.
