Coordination Problems in Evolution: Eigen's Paradox

You might want to look at "The major transitions in life revisited." That's a book from 2011 that looks at what has been learned in the field since the publication of the original in 1995. I know that we know far more about eukaryogenesis than we did then. Also, there are better models of the RNA world than either stochastic correction or Eigen's hypercycles. That is, models which can explain the ability of life to become complex in an environment of inaccurate replication and free riders. If that book isn't enough to get you more up to date, email carlf at abinitio dot com and I'll shoot you some references.
