“Edifying and hugely entertaining. . . . O’Hanlon’s is a magnificently original voice: manic, scholarly, funny, sumptuously descriptive, and more than slightly deranged.” –Jon Krakauer
“One of the most thrilling and inspiring books about science I've ever read . . . hours of pleasure offered by an enchanting dinner guest [who] often reveals himself to be foolishly bold, comically inept, intellectually astute and a madcap driver: Mr. Toad with a Ph.D.”
–Bruce Barcott, The New York Times Book Review
“Trawler read[s] like The Perfect Storm meets Monty Python.”–Outside
“O'Hanlon is an adventurer worthy of the word–a credentialed naturalist, a rompish wanderer, a sparkling armchair companion, a bit of a goof and also a smashingly evocative writer. . . . In that wild and exhilarating junction where human and nature meet, he pursues the joys of discovery.”–Los Angeles Times Book Review
