"The best book yet written about modern biology." Tom Wilkie, The Independent, 13 June 1995. I started to read this book in 1995, but found it hard work.

It is a significant record of biological research in the 20th century, but of its era.

More than good stories, Judson makes useful generalizations and indicates methodology. Emphasizing great minds and their best moments the book can be an inspiration to the more ambitious in any field. Photographers who aspire to produce not only unique work, but uniquely useful imagery can benefit reading here.… (mere)
