About the Book

Set amidst the Woods Hole research colony on Cape Cod. Daniel C. Dennett said, “Thinking along with Calvin is sheer delight. This book has the most vivid and lucid explanations of brain function I have seen, and his discussions of evolution place him in the same league with Stephen Gould and Richard Dawkins as elegant expositors in the life sciences.”
