  1. Mera om flera än i Golsuns första

    Goulson är en av dom människorna jag verkligen kommit att beundra genom att så mycket av honom tränger igenom det han skriver och beskriver. Han förmedlar känslor och är personlig på ett sätt som tillför lite av kåseri inom vetenskapslitteratur och därmed gör den både mer underhållande och tillgänglig. Efter att läst boken har man fått med sig kunskaper om en värld av småkryp och deras beteenden "på köpet".
    Så - jätteintressant igen, men A Sting in the Tail är ändå förstavalet.

"Wonderfully entertaining... Engages the reader as much with the eloquence of its argument as with the charm of its humour" -- Mark Cocker * Mail on Sunday * "Goulson writes with infectious enthusiasm... A lively and important read." -- Ian Critchley * Sunday Times * "Had me exclaiming with delight... Goulson's book is juicy and delicious, layered with flavours and steeped in culture" * Daily Telegraph * "Buy this book, give it as a present. It is required reading for being a human in the 21st century." -- Matthew Cobb, professor of zoology at the Univerity of Manchester * New Scientist * "A gripping account of the importance of insects to our environment.... Goulson has an easy-going style and an enthusiastic yet rigourous approach to material that could seem dry ... Goulson's patient attempts to establish a link between [bees' colony collapse disorder and a new class of insecticide] become as gripping as any forensic thriller." -- Suzi Feay * Financial Times * "For those who think of science as being dry and boring this book will be a revelation. Goulson's book is juicy and delicious, layered with flavours and steeped in culture." -- Nicola Davies, 5 stars * Daily Telegraph * "Glorious... The real pleasure of reading this book is hearing the hum of biodiversity rising from every page." -- Damian Whitworth * The Times * "A wonderfully entertaining one-man campaign... A blend of scientific evidence and amusing travelogue that engages the reader as much with the eloquence of its argument as with the charm of its humour." -- Mark Cocker, 5 stars * Mail on Sunday * "An inspirational case for awareness and appreciation of the teeming diversity." -- John Akeroyd * Spectator * "Urgent and impassioned." -- Max Liu * Independent * "Witty, clever and richly informative." -- Mark Cocker * New Statesman * "Will make you glad that British universities are full of slightly fruity, quietly impassioned academics devoting their life to the smallest of creatures on Earth." * Big Issue * "Much more than a series of romantic wildlife walks... A trove of elegant and fascinating ecological tales." -- Richard Jones * BBC Wildlife * "Absolutely captivating." * Independent * "Biology is beautiful, as told in these pages." -- Gerald Isaaman * Camden Review * "A latter-day Gerald Durrell, Goulson fairly buzzes with enthusiasm, recounting numerous hilarious wildlife encounters with great literary flair, whilst retaining a scientist's meticulous eye for detail and a conservationist's concern for the future of the planet." * Good Book Guide * "`[Goulson's] heartfelt call for us to cherish the nurture of nature is as sweet as honey." -- Lain Finlayson and Kate Saunders * Saga Magazin *
