Thomas, Lewis, Thomas, Lewis

SUMMARY

"How to praise Dr. Thomas most accurately? One wonders. A reviewer who concentrates upon Dr. Thomas' effortless, beautifully-toned style, even to the point of claiming that many of the 29 essays in this book are masterpieces of the 'art of the essay,' would direct attention away from the sheer amount of scientific information these slender essays contain. A reviewer who deals with the book as 'science' would be forced, by Dr. Thomas' marvelous use of paradox, to admit that the book might not yield its wisdom at a single reading....One might as well rise to the higher speculation that [this book] anticipates the kind of writing that will appear more and more frequently, as scientists take on the language of poetry in order to communicate human truths too mysterious for old-fashioned common sense."Thomas, Lewis is the author of 'Lives of a Cell Notes of a Biology Watcher', published 1978 under ISBN 9780140047431 and ISBN 0140047433.
