Staff Reviews

If you have a relationship with ants (be it positive or war-based), you should read this new book by noted biologist and naturalist Edward O. Wilson. It is an accessible exploration of the world of these six-legged powerhouses. At worst, you’ll have a lot of cool facts to impress your friends with. Or you just might come out with a newfound appreciation of the wonderful world of Formicidae!

— MJ


“In Mr. Wilson ants have found not only their Darwin but also their Homer.” —Economist

In Tales from the Ant World, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Edward O. Wilson takes us on a thrilling myrmecological tour across continents and through time, inviting us into his decades-long scientific obsession with ants. Animating his observations with personal stories, Wilson hones in on twenty-five ant species to explain how these creatures talk, smell, taste, and crucially, how they fight to determine dominance. Richly illustrated throughout with depictions of ant species and photos from Wilson’s own expeditions, Tales from the Ant World is a fascinating personal account from one of our greatest scientists—and a necessary volume for any lover of the natural world.
