John McPhee

"[McPhee] triumphs by succinct prose, by his uncanny ability to capture the essence of a complex issue, or an arcane trade secret, in a well-turned phrase." -- Stephen Jay Gould, The New York Review of Books

"No one else can take topics as diverse and seemingly dry and make of them such diverting, entertaining, and educational literature." -- Library Journal
