Oh you must read it. I must have read it half a dozen times and I get more out of it every time. It's just so much fun as well. I must admit some of the biology in it puzzles me a little though.

I'll just be sticking with my cheesy Gay Vampire Detective novels and cross-stitching, m'self. Not in the mood for hard thinking, yet!

Excellent book; is it back in print, or did you find a used copy?

Thats been out for a while, I think... yep, my 1999 copy is the 20th anniversary edition. Time for a Silver Anniversary edition now!

It is one of the most inspiring books I've ever read....

I read that around this time last year - great book (even if it did take a while to finish it!)

I have attempted to read it several times. I finally bought a copy that I will open some time.
