Endlessly illuminating and entertaining,
This review is from: Tetrapod Zoology Book One (Paperback)
Tetrapod Zoology Book One is exactly what it says it is -- a compilation and distillation of articles from author Darren Naish's outstanding blog of the same name. Within the broad field of Natural History, Naish's range of interest is astonishing, and his erudition humbling: I doubt anyone reading this book could come away without having learned something new from each chapter, even if it's on their own speciality. What's impressive is that Naish so successfully walks the line between "popular" and "technical" writing, so that the prose is easily comprehensible to an intelligent layman, but still precise enough to satisfy specialists. Highly recommended.
