This book opened my world up when I read it twenty years ago. I'm very pleased to see how well it's held up

Enjoyable and informative collection of four essays on animals and the people who study them: bats, crocodilian, whales, and penguins. I know some people don't like Ackerman's style -- often more poetic and prose -- but it never bothered me that much and is at a minimum here.
