One recommendation to anyone lucky enough to read this book: don't flip through and look at the pictures first. Read it from beginning to end as it was intended, or you'll ruin the story.
You know how you think you have a handle on how big the world is and what it contains? And then you see or read or hear something than makes you realize how small your view is? After reading this book, I felt the space inside my head get bigger to accomodate all the things I hadn't considered.
I'm a small lending library with several copies of this title around to get more folks reading this brilliant book. Although this should be required reading for all inquisitive types, Mr. Wilson's Cabinet of Wonder is a fantastic read for folks heading off to college - especially grad school - because it gets you asking good questions about schalorship, what we know and what we don't know.
