Microcosm in tomorrow’s New York Times Book Review

Science writer Peter Dizikes reviews my book Microcosm for the New York Times. It’s great to see that he gets it–i.e., he understands what I’m trying to do with E. coli in the book. I actually appreciate that more than a positive review. Fortunately, he liked the book, too, calling it engrossing, vivid, and adroit. Check it out.

  1. Carl – Great review – succinct and positive. I’m currently in Chapter 9, Palimpsest, and just finished reading about the flagellum debate in the Dover trial. Once I finish I’ll be eagerly awaiting your next book. I do hope you come to Dallas on your book tour.

  2. Yes, it is a very nice review. It looks like a very good choice of topic by Carl. This old physicist is surely intrigued and intends to read the book. Thanks. Don

  3. I notice that review didn’t do your Amazon numbers any harm, Carl! 299 when I just checked and number 1 in three categories. That gives us fellow science writers something to shoot for. Good work!
