Eight Little Piggies by Stephen Jay Gould

Book Description

No one illuminates the wonderful workings of the natural world as perceptively and enjoyably as Stephen Jay Gould. In this volume of reflections on biology, history and culture, Gould addresses the burning issues of ecological crisis and contemporary species extinctions as well as giving us fascinating insights into evolution - such as the fact that the first land vertebrates had up to eight toes on each foot, and that the ichthyosaur had a very significant kink in its tail.

Books By Author Stephen Jay Gould

Leonardo's Mountain of Clams and the Diet of Worms by Stephen Jay Gould Leonardo's Mountain of Clams and the Diet of Worms, Paperback (September 2011)

With his customary brilliance, Gould examines the puzzles and paradoxes great and small that build nature's and humanity's diversity and order.

Dinosaur in a Haystack by Stephen Jay Gould Dinosaur in a Haystack, Paperback (September 2011)

From fads to fungus, baseball to beeswax, Gould always circles back to the great themes of time, change, and history, carrying readers home to the centering theme of evolution.

I Have Landed by Stephen Jay Gould I Have Landed, Paperback (September 2011)

Gould's final essay collection is based on his remarkable series for Natural History magazine--exactly 300 consecutive essays, with never a month missed, published from 1974 to 2001. Both an intellectually thrilling journey into the nature of scientific discovery and the most personal book he ever published.

Full House by Stephen Jay Gould Full House, Paperback (September 2011)

Gould shows why a more accurate way of understanding our world is to look at a given subject within its own context, to see it as a part of a spectrum of variation and then to reconceptualize trends as expansion or contraction of this "full house" of variation, and not as the progress or degeneration of an average value, or single thing.
