Atlantic review (with lots of photos): http://bit.ly/vGfQ51

"...a weird and wonderful almanac of the lovable geeks who immortalized passion for science on their living flesh. Zimmer divides the book into sections around each of the major sciences -- math, chemistry, neuroscience, evolutionary biology, astronomy, and even an entire chapter on DNA -- and uses each tattoo as a meditation pillow from whence to reflect on the science in question with his unmistakeable essay style of intelligent wit."
