"Microcosmos is a book for all to read. Although the ideas expressed with such clarity and enthusiasm in this enthralling volume are soundly based on current scientific research they are couched in a language that anyone with a smattering of biology can easily grasp. . . . Microcosmos is a book packed with information and fascinating detail, but all of it to the purpose of demonstrating how life forms are interwoven with each other." * The Ecologist *
"A fascinating, engrossing, superbly written account. . . . Makes the story of evolution-including very recent findings-accessible." * Los Angeles Times *
"A stunning, complex chronicle . . . proposing that only an understanding of the microcosm from which life sprang can make possible our ultimate leap beyond Earth into a human-devised supercosm." * Publishers Weekly *
"First published in 1986, Microcosmos is already regarded as a seminal book in its field." * Hartford Courant *
