A marvelous collection of articles on the haphazard lines of evolution, and the equally haphazard paths of scientific discovery. Plain language and sophisticated thought by one of the last scientists with deep humanistic interests. Gould narrates the story of the QWERTY keypad as it were that of a mollusk of the “Cambrian explosion.”
