Product description

Review

Stephen Jay Gould is a serious and gifted interpreter of biological theory, of the history of ideas and of the cultural context of scientific discovery. . . . "The Panda's Thumb" is fresh and mind-stretching. Above all, it is exultant. So should its readers be. --H. Jack Geiger"

It is a wonder what Mr. Gould can do with the most unlikely phenomena: a tiny organism's use of the earth's magnetic field as a guide to food and comfort, for instance, or the panda's thumb--which isn't one...Science writing at its best.

Gould can do no wrong...As long as he writes, you cannot help but read--and enjoy.--Isaac Asimov --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
