Reviews

"Molluscs may not seem life's most exciting phylum. But Helen Scales, a marine biologist-turned-science writer, makes an impassioned and convincing case otherwise." --The Economist

"An enchanting, accessible tour of the seashell and its place and purpose within the natural world." --Kirkus Reviews

"Scales . . . brings a marine biologist's eye and aficionado's heart to these musings on seashells . . . [Her] eclectic approach to this ancient bridge between the human and natural worlds conveys her curiosity and appreciation."" --Publishers Weekly
