Description

Pulitzer Prize–winning biologist Edward O. Wilson imparts the wisdom of his storied career to the next generation.

Edward O. Wilson has distilled sixty years of teaching into a book for students, young and old. Reflecting on his coming-of-age in the South as a Boy Scout and a lover of ants and butterflies, Wilson threads these twenty-one letters, each richly illustrated, with autobiographical anecdotes that illuminate his career - both his successes and his failures - and his motivations for becoming a biologist. At a time in human history when our survival is more than ever linked to our understanding of science, Wilson insists that success in the sciences does not depend on mathematical skill, but rather a passion for finding a problem and solving it. From the collapse of stars to the exploration of rain forests and the oceans’ depths, Wilson instills a love of the innate creativity of science and a respect for the human being’s modest place in the planet’s ecosystem in his readers.

Long on biography, short on advice

maybe I am imagining it but I thought the description of this book suggested that it would give advice in surviving in science in the current political climate of science bashing and fake news

Inspiring and thought provoking

Dry details but overall reassuring for someone questioning whether or not to pursue a career in science.

Good for a young scientist (In biology)

I think if I were just going to college I would like this book more, but even then there are long stretches of the book where Wilson just goes on about research he did and experiences he had in order to make a single point. If you find ecology, biology, and info about ants (his main field of study) and other insect species fun to learn about then you will love this book more than I did. I thought I was getting a book about "lessons learned being a scientist," but got a book about "the study of ants with a couple bits of advice" (mostly at the beginning).

Inspiring and Motivating

So many times I've said " I wish I could absorb all the knowledge and wisdom of influential people in science". This book provides that opportunity and gives some amazing advise to young scientist as well as to seasoned scientist. In the beginning the narrator is hard to understand but by the middle of the book he does become easier to understand.

odd voice changes

It was very obvious that there was a second reader chiming in to complete some statements and trying to match the voice of the main reader. While it wasn't offputting or bad it pulled me from story briefly every time.

Very pronunciation

I absolutely loved the book, but the reading left a lot to be desired. Ecosystem is not pronounced Echosystem. There were a number of other similar words that were grossly mispronounced.
