"Mr. Quammen...is able to make highly complex biological and ecological dynamics readily accessible to lay readers, while at the same time regaling us with what initially sound like stream of consciousness musings....But as the book progresses, the reader begins to realize that such musings are less digressions for the sake of digression than illuminating asides that underscore the marvelous complexity of nature, its fragile system of checks and balances, and the domino-like effect that change and flux can have on its intricate machinery."Quammen, David is the author of 'Monster of God The Man-Eating Predator in the Jungles of History and the Mind', published 2004 under ISBN 9780393326093 and ISBN 0393326098.
