Great collection, great writing
Each of the entries in this excellent collection is worth reading more than once. Encompassing a wide range of topics from evolution and germs to wild dogs in Africa and string theory, all meet the requirement of good writing. And, each of the interesting articles (19 in all) reflect editor David Quammen¿s reminder that 'Science is a human activity.' From the editor¿s introduction to the final entry, Gary Taube¿s article on string theory, the book will appeal both to readers who are interested in current topics in science and nature and those who simply appreciate good writing.Was this review helpful?
