David Quammen provides in this book a snapshot of intellectual achievement spanning the field of human knowledge and inquiry. Mr. Quammen takes readers from the subatomic (string theory) to the microscopic (deadly viruses and bacteria) to the planetary (disappearance of animal species and family farms).
