Reviews

John Noble Wilford The New York Times Book Review [An] excellent book. [Shipman's] narrative is alive with stories...and takes the reader into the minds of these scientists. She seems to be on a journey herself, generously bringing us along.
Will St. John Detroit Free Press Taking Wing gives its readers a splendid view of both birds and brains in action.
