He had not begun life as a rather eccentric, bitter old manGrrlScientist links to a recent book by Bernd Heinrich. I have read a lot of his books, and there is not a single one I would not recommend (hey, I recommend them all!).
This latest book looks like a very interesting bit of research into his father's life. I wish that during the time I knew Bernd that I had ever talked about his research and interests (other than running). I am delighted he has written books to allow me to learn what I did not at the time.
