Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Provocative and delightfully discursive essays on natural history. . . . Gould is the Stan Musial of essay writing. He can work himself into a corkscrew of ideas and improbable allusions paragraph after paragraph and then, uncoiling, hit it with such power that his fans know they are experiencing the game of essay writing at its best."--John Noble Wilford,

Synopsis:

From his bestseller Wonderful Life to his splendid essays on endlessly interesting variations of evolution, Gould has raised the art of scientific writing to new heights. "Whether his topic is typewriter design, the technical triumph of Voyager or Joe DiMaggio's hitting streak, Gould holds our attention".--Publishers Weekly. Photos and drawings.
