'No one knows more about Darwin and about evolution than Stephen Gould does. No one writes more clearly on these subjects' - Isaac Asimov

In this dazzling set of review articles Gould ranges over almost the whole of modern science. He provides a wealth of fresh insights into geology and evolution, lambasts the misuses of genetics for political purposes, explores the uses and abuses of scientific method and paints fine pen portraits of biologists who have triumphed against all the odds. Clear, incisive and beautifully written, the result will disappoint none of Gould's countless admirers.

'The lucidity of his arguments and the ease of his writing are as remarkedly and satisfyingly as ever. He is like his avian namesake the kay, colourful and garrulous'.
- Alan Brafield in Nature

'An Urchin in the Storm is a reminder that one can write about contemporary issues win science with elegance and enthusiasm' - Anthony Clarke, Books of the Year in the Sunday Times
