“[Quammen] is our greatest living chronicler of the natural world. . . .There are vivacious descriptions on almost every page." (Parul Sehgal The New York Times)
“David Quammen’s diligently researched and deeply considered overview of what’s been going on recently in evolutionary biology is illuminating, wondrous, and gripping. Also scary when it comes to thinking about the evolution of Homo sapiens. This is stunning, first-rate journalism.” (Barry Lopez, author of Arctic Dreams )
“There's no one who writes about complex science better than David Quammen. The Tangled Tree is at once fascinating, illuminating, and totally absorbing.” (Elizabeth Kolbert, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Sixth Extinction )
“Quammen has written a deep and daring intellectual adventure. . . . The Tangled Tree is much more than a report on some cool new scientific facts. It is, rather, a source of wonder.” (Thomas Levenson The Boston Globe)
"Utterly absorbing. . . . Changed the way I see life." (Scott Simon NPR)
