James Lovelock's working biography,
This review is from: Homage to Gaia: The Life of an Independent Scientist (Hardcover)
I have read all Mr Lovelock's books, detailing the Gaia Theory, a theory that shows the earth as a self regulating super organism. I appreciate his work and agree on his theory.
Homage to Gaia details Mr Lovelocks work firstly as a scientist for the govenment during the war years and then later as an independent scientist.
A whole chapter of the book details the Electron Capture Device, a device invented by Lovelock, that led to our greater understanding of the threat to the ozone layer.
This book demonstrates that the Gaia theory has not always been well received by his fellow scientists, but his ideas as detailed in the book do have a consistency of being correct over the years.
