About this book

The extraordinary autobiography of one of the most accomplished evolutionary biologists of our time. `I am already well versed in, and impressed with, Gary Vermeij's science. It is his take on life as an indomitably-spirited blind person that really grabbed my attention here - so I venture to suggest, the main force of the book, its main value and appeal, is that it is an open and honest account of a difficult but triumphant life', Niles Eldridge.
