from Helen Fisher, an anthropologist with Rutgers University: "What an adventure! E.O. Wilson weaves colorful stories about snakes and sharks, ants and hyenas with principles of nature and insights into human nature - including aggression, altruism and homosexuality. And he provides a vision for the future of science and humanity, all with a keen and seasoned scientific eye, a charming humor and a poet's sense of wonder. When I read Wilson, I always feel as if I have been let in on a secret."

This handsome hardcover arrived safely today - just ahead of a rainstorm, which I hope will ease the high-90s heat wave we've been having. Thanks so much!

I really enjoyed this collection of essays, which go into the marvelous intricacies of nature - and the interactions of humans with same, for good or ill. I liked the concept of "biophilia" - "an innate tendency to seek connections with nature and other forms of life" - and found the many detailed descriptions of creatures from sharks to ants quite fascinating. There are intriguing facts, and humorous asides - and a reminder to be mindful of the creatures with whom we share the planet...

I didn't get a chance to read it before sending it off to the next location I was going to.
