LETTERS TO A YOUNG SCIENTIST distills more than sixty years of teaching into twenty letters filled with anecdotes of success and failure that should encourage and entice the next generation to have a love of science and respect for the modest place we humans have in the planet's ecosystem.

EDWARD O. WILSON (pictured below from our Wall of Fame) was a Homeboy (born in Birmingham and raised in Mobile, B.S. and M.S. from the University of Alabama) who never forgot his roots. He was the most respected naturalist on earth, and in the twenty plus years after he retired from Harvard, he wrote fifteen books. There are two Pulitzer Prizes among the huge number of honors he won. Thank you Edward O. Wilson for signing our books and R.I.P.
