Also on the bedside table is Bully for Brontosaurus by Steven Jay Gould. An old anthropology professor had Gould's Ever Since Darwin as mandatory reading, and I've been a Gould fan ever since. I don't read his books in one go, but read an essay or two when the mood hits.
Ah, I miss Steven Jay Gould. I used to subscribe to Natural History just for his column. And I absolutely love his book on the Burgess Shale (even if it is a little outdated now, at least in terms of the Hallucigenia).
Please stop by my Gallery and YouTube Page for a visit. And read Trunkards! And check out my Heroes essays.
