    ..more people could see the beauty in it as well. Again I am very sorry for missing the meeting. I hope the next book we read is the one I had suggested last meeting. It is Lawrence krauss' "A universe from nothing".

    I thought this was a great book and I was looking forward to discussing it with all of you. However, I have been forced to hold over 6 hours at my station so I will not be able to make it. Shubins ability to portray the beauty of evolution through a book is astonishing. If only

    How's everyone doing with the book so far? I'm half way thru and I think Shubin has the agility of a Gibbon gracefully swinging from one branch of science to another so effortlessly and gracefully.

      Yes, the interdisciplinary-ness is my favorite part, too. Much of the information I know, but he knits it together in a wonderful tapestry.

    Sorry beautiful people. I really liked this book and would like to talk about it, but I've been sick for 3 days and I'm still not at my best. See you next time! :-)

    This is actually a "maybe" as I will be in San Diego for the weekend and don't know when I can get away. I really like Shubin's writing and as a nut for fossils, evolution, etc. his work fascinates me & leaves me a teensy bit jealous. OK, a LOT jealous...

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
