About the Author:
Stephen Jay Gould (1941-2002) was the Alexander Agassiz Professor of Zoology and Professor of Geology at Harvard University. He published over twenty books, received the National Book and National Book Critics Circle Awards, and a MacArthur Fellowship.
Review:
“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.”
- The New Yorker

“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, New York Times Book Review

“Gould can do no wrong...As long as he writes, you cannot help but read―and enjoy.”
- Isaac Asimov
