Reviews

"Vogel's latest success informs and delights."
"Fascinating.... [Vogel's] interests seemingly know no bounds, and he takes the readers along with him on a complex, absorbing journey of exploration notable for its unexpected twists and turns."
"A book that should be enjoyed and understood by intelligent non-scientists as much as by scientists ... entertaining and illuminating."
