Vincent G. Dethier
The author is not merely an outstanding researcher but also has the gift of clear communication. His main interest is in the behavior of a fly. This outstanding book does not merely explain how one sets about the task of learning how a fly works; it also shows the research worker enjoying his work. It shows him pursuing with absorbing interest the problems that present themselves in his work. It explains why the scientist, because of his eager curiosity, at times appears childish to others. But most important, it shows that the scientist, in spite of being, perhaps, a little possessed, and at times somewhat childish, is fundamentally no different from other people with a calling in life.
