Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

A 30-year veteran photographer for National Geographic, Mark Moffett is also a high-school dropout with a Ph.D, a globetrotting insect enthusiast, a three-time guest on the Colbert Report, and an ineffable eccentric. All of which is to say that, in the right hands, he's also a perfect subject for a written profile. Author Nicholas Griffin is the man with those hands. Despite making his name in historical fiction, Griffin's portrayal of Moffett is masterful, a one-sitting page turner that hits from the opening sentence: "When I shook Mark Moffett's hand, I realized it was swollen and marked by a distinct red mound the size of a grape." (It gets grosser.) Despite the brilliance of his photography and the ambition fueling his science, Moffett's fierce independence has left him something of a persona non grata among the academic establishment, and that's without his theory on the more-than-analogous connection between ant colonies and human cities. All told, Before the Swarm is a near-perfect serving of short-form reading. --Jason Kirk
