I like the way Shields has interspersed autobiographical detail with factual portions about human development. And I like his writing style - he keeps it light and informal even through the dry facts. Unfortunately, I didn't find the subject matter interesting enough for me to want to finish reading, and I decided to stop about one-third of the way through. That's a reflection on the scope of what I've read before rather than a reflection on this book.
