"Lively and fascinating. . . . [Gould] writes beautifully about science and the wonders of nature."—Tracy Kidder

Steven Rose

His method is fairly consistent. Most of the essays begin with a nonscientific anecdote - about, say, the theme of a Rossini operatic aria....And before two pages are up, we are drawn effortlessly into an analysis of often profound biological questions....But over all, it is on the biological insights of the essays - and hence their social and philosophical implications - that this book (and indeed Mr. Gould himself) stands or falls. -- New York Times
