Editorial Reviews


“Well conceived and beautifully written, Seasons of Life is a lucid and engaging exploration of seasonal rhythms in all living things.”—Jennifer Ackerman, author of Sex Sleep Eat Drink Dream:  A Day in the Life of Your Body
(Jennifer Ackerman)

"Seasons of Life is a joy to read, and a compelling text on the importance of seasonality in the evolution of life on Earth."—Nature

Finalist for the 2009 Book of the Year Award, presented by ForeWord magazine
(Book of the Year Award ForeWord Magazine 2010-01-01)

“An excellent explanation of an original theme:  how geophysical variation leads to biological adaptation and, in turn, to measurable behavioral and phenotypic consequences. This is an important causal chain that is rarely articulated."—Daniel Rock, Co-Director, Centre for Clinical Research in Neuropsychiatry, The University of Western Australia

(Daniel Rock)
