Editorial Reviews

Review

''There's no one who writes about complex science better than David Quammen. The Tangled Tree is at once fascinating, illuminating, and totally absorbing.'' --(Elizabeth Kolbert, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Sixth Extinction)

''One of the central insights in Charles Darwin's theory of evolution was that life branched like a tree. And one of the revolutionary discoveries of molecular biology over a century later was that the tree of life was, in fact, a far more complex maze of branches. In The Tangled Tree, David Quammen offers the definitive chronicle of this profound development in our understanding of the history of life.'' --(Carl Zimmer, author of She Has Her Mother's Laugh and Parasite Rex)
