About the Author

Stephen Jay Gould (1941-2002) was the Alexander Agassiz Professor of Zoology and Professor of Geology at Harvard University and the curator for invertebrate palaeontology in the University's Museum of Comparative Zoology. He is the author of over twenty books, and received the National Book Award, the National Book Critics Circle Award, and the MacArthur Fellowship. He died in May 2002.


"A hard, even ruthless, completion of Darwinism which is, nevertheless, exhilarating and allows for future argument" -- Melvyn Bragg * The Times *
"Gould only enriches the texture of his writing with each successive phase-He would not be the great science writer that he is if he were not also a great humanist" -- Marek Kohn * New Statesman & Society *
"Gould's depth and humanity fit him for Montaigne's mantle more plausibly that anyone else currently writing... Lucid, exciting, accessible" -- John Carey * Sunday Times *
