Review:

PRAISE FOR R. J. BERRY'S PREVIOUS TITLES: 'Inheritance and Natural History': 'Of all the many virtues of Professor Berry's book -- its wit and elegance, its marvellous rummagings, its great common sense -- I would value very highly the fact that it is not oversimplified! Professor Berry's profoundly important book is a worthy addition to the ecosystem, being in its form just as much as its theme, an expression of the diversity of the creation, and an excellent subject for natural selection.' Richard Mabey, The Times 'Natural History of Shetland': 'This book is a delight for the general reader. I have no doubt that it is of absorbing interest to the specialist. Even I, who can hardly tell a dandelion from a buttercup or sandstone from granite, read the chapters on vegetation and geology with pleasure! This book will be read with enjoyment even by those who don't go to Shetland and is a splendid bonus for those who can.' the Daily Telegraph 'Natural History of Orkney': 'There is nothing quite so infectious as enthusiasm, and on the subject of Orkney the distinguished Professor of Genetics at London University, R. J. Berry is positively brimful of it! He has produced a wonderful survey of the natural history of Orkney in one volume at a reasonable price and written in a style to gladden the hearts of non-scientific readers.' Glasgow Herald
