Award-winning, best-selling author, evolutionary biologist, and paleontologist Stephen Jay Gould takes the art of the essay to an unprecedented height of excellence in this vibrant collection of writings on science and natural history. From fads to fungus, baseball to beeswax, Gould always circles back to the great themes of time, change, and history, carrying listeners home to the centering theme of evolution. These unabridged selections were originally published in Natural History magazine. In April 2000, the US Library of Congress named Gould a "Living Legend". He died of cancer two years later at the age of 60. In 2008 he was posthumously awarded the Darwin-Wallace Medal along with 12 other recipients. Until 2008 this medal had been awarded only every 50 years by the Linnean Society of London.
