“An affecting and mind-expanding group portrait of three creative thinkers, but Ricketts glows the brightest, a friend to bums and geniuses who was happiest knee-deep in a tide pool.” — Booklist (starred review)

“an engrossing memoir ... a fascinating insight into how art, science and philosophy can nurture, inspire and feed off one another. Tamm writes with impassioned honesty about his subject’s many dimensions.” — Publishers Weekly

"Tamm’s book is likely to be the best biography of Ricketts for some time," — Nature

“I liked this book so much I read it twice.” — American Scientist
