“…full of enthusiasm and passion for the power of
observations to explain, inform, and educate”
Anibal and I love this review of Observation and Ecology, not just because it says nice things about the book, but because the reviewer, David Schimel of the Jet Propulsion Lab at California Institute of Technology, clearly got the book. He conveys well the enthusiasm Anibal and I tried to convey and the type of questions we were trying to explore. Here’s my favorite line:
“They take on a number of sacred cows, and gore them,
so this will be a thought-provoking and much-discussed book”
As a final aside, I think it speaks exactly to the kind of cross-disciplinary knowledge we discuss, that a scientist at a Jet Propulsion Lab could comment so knowledgeably on our book and the questions we raise within it. Then again, check out Dr. Schimel’s professional record and the diversity of things he’s done – it’s really impressive!
