Kaesler notes, however, the book is "not easy reading by any means" and Gould's use of computers to crunch the numbers for his statistical analysis "are difficult to assimilate."

    While this is technically a journal issue, it is entirely devoted to Gould's paper and it preceeds the publication of his first regularly published book by eight years. ISBN: B00J0HUB4Y.
