Award-winning, bestselling author, evolutionary biologist, and paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould takes the art of the essay to an unprecedented height of excellence in this vibrant new collection of writings on science and natural history. From fads to fungus, baseball to beeswax, Gould always circles back to the great themes of time, change, and history, carrying readers home to the centering theme of evolution. Illustrations.

About the Author:
Stephen Jay Gould is the Alexander Agassiz Professor of Zoology and Professor of Geology at Harvard and the Curator for Invertebrate Paleontology in the university's Museum of Comparative Zoology.
From AudioFile:
These tapes bring together Stephen Jay Gould's most recent essays on topics as diverse as evolution, Edgar Allen Poe and the meaning of the millennium. The presentation alternates between readings by MacRae and Zimbalist. The former presents with a reedy lyricism befitting the author's lighter moments, and the latter provides the raspy, stentorian baritone of the distinguished professor. Simply packaged and powered by dense prose, this volume teaches us that great scholarship can delight and instruct. J.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
