Media reviews

"What pleasure to see the dishonest, the inept, and the misguided deftly given their due, while praise is lavished on the deserving – for reasons well and truly stated."
Kirkus Reviews

"No one knows more about Darwin and about evolution than Stephen Gould does. No one writes more clearly on these subject then Stephen Gould does. No one is better equipped to deal with fallacies, however crude or however subtle, in this field than Stephen Gould is. This collection of reviews is my proof."
– Isaac Asimov
