Reviews

Beautifully composed . . . This elegant treatise will inspire readers who relish a philosophical approach to science and travel.-- "Library Journal"
"Altogether excellent."-- "Brain Pickings"
"Part memoir, part popular science blog, with interludes of closely guided casting in England, Italy, and Iceland, Gleiser, like many of us, explores angling as a "conduit to the outer world of natural phenomena and the inner world of the self."-- "Fly Fishing & Tying Journal"
