The inside cover picture shows that the wrong hand can fit into a glove in two different ways. Recognizing the incorrect fit requires different mechanisms: 1) fingers mismatched or 2) palm curl incorrect. Similarly, the wrong enantiomer can fit into an enzyme's active site in different ways and require different mechanisms for high enantioselectivity. For more information, see the article by R. J. Kazlauskas et al. on p. 2213 ff.
