Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Recalling his life from a childhood exploring the Gulf Coast of Alabama to a career as a renowned professor at Harvard, Pulitzer Prize winner Edward O. Wilson details how a boyhood enchantment with nature became a lifelong calling. Thoughtful and utterly charming, Wilson provides insight into the origin and development of the ideas that have shaped his biological research and defines the central principles of the field of evolutionary biology. Witty, honest, and profoundly intelligent, his memoir is required reading for all impassioned by the frontiers of scientific understanding.

"Candid and lively....Quite wonderful". — Washington Post Book World

"A mixture of loneliness, amusement, curiosity, and intellectual rigor makes the voice of this thoughtful man unforgettable". — The New York Times Book Review

"Exquisitely written....Wilson beautifully conveys his love of nature and his passion for science". — USA Today
