Wonderment is a tremendous story about a man's search and struggles for love, family, truth, and spirituality, while never losing the eternal quest for the mysteries of the universe and life itself.

A rare combination of travel, adventure, journalism, acting, and scie ...more

Much of my career has been associated with science writing, the rest with other enterprises that we tend to lump together as various parts of “the media.” The media, then, are the subject of a fair amount of commentary in my latest book, Wonderment.
