"How can I persuade every intelligent person to read this important and elegant book? He talks about all kinds of things; the why of the pain of human childbirth - the reasons for sleeping and dreaming - chimpanzees taught to communicate in deaf and dumb language - the definition of death - cloning - computers - intelligent life on other planets - FASCINATING - DELIGHTFUL!"
