'Not only is The Intuitive Way of Knowing a wonderful tribute to Brian for those who knew him and also for people like myself who have been greatly influenced by his astoundingly insightful, ground-breaking and also spiritual work (see for example Brian's final book Nature's Due -- Healing Our Fragmented Culture), it is also an excellent introduction to the ways in which scientists such as Brian work with their faculties of intuition (not to be confused in this sense with feeling) in order to truly comprehend organisms and the meaning of living processes.' -- Simon Robinson, Transition Consciousness 'The final part on theoretical biology opens with a brilliant essay from Fritjof Capra... Although the book is technical in parts, it provides an excellent overview of the significant contribution that Brian [Goodwin] made to evolutionary biology and reminds the reader of his remarkable qualities as a man and a teacher. -- David Lorimer, Scientific and Medical Network Review 'Anyone with an interest in evolutionary biology will find a wealth of information covering a broad range of ideas on the subject.' -- David Anstey, New Vision
