About this book

In this seventh collection of pieces drawn from his writings in Natural History magazine, Gould ranges from the wisdom of Charles Darwin to that of the Old Testament Psalms, from the dinosaurs of Jurassic Park to the dynamic new theories and reconstruction of these giant fossils, from the thwarted human nature of Frankenstein's monster to the moral imperatives that thinking people have to confront in the fallacies of eugenics, creationism, and other ethical challenges. As always in his writings Gould circles back to the great themes of evolution, with a mixture of amusement and awe.
