I haven't read this book!,
This review is from: Bully for Brontosaurus (Paperback)
This book comprises a series of essays originally published in "Natural History" (the magazine of the American Museum of Natural History). Despite being UK-based, I was a subscriber to this magazine for many years because of Stephen Jay Gould's wonderful essays entitled "This View of Life"; which is where I read each and every essay when it first appeared.
As with other similar titles (The Flamingo's Smile, The Mismeasure of Man, The Panda's Thumb, etc.) this is a collection of some of the finest popular science writing of recent times.
