Everyone in your house will be curious to look through it and will surely appreciate it's presence on the coffee table."

"[A] wonderful graphic adaptation of biologist EO Wilson's memoirs. It's touching and enlightening and leaves you feeling excited about the natural world."

"Ottaviani's adaptation is astonishingly detailed Butzer's illustrations are charming... Wilson's life is undoubtedly a rich and fascinating one."

"Through Ottaviani's interpretation of Wilson's words, as well as Butzer's skillful capturing of thoughts and events in his colourful and accessible art, Naturalist: A Graphic Adaptation manages to both inform and entertain. It tells the story of Edward O. Wilson's remarkable life and career in a way that impresses and inspires, and reading it with hopefully prompt others to follow the same path as Wilson and do what they can to increase knowledge and understanding of the natural world."
Culture Fly

"This is a wonderful idea brilliantly executed The story captures Wilson's warm, gentle humor, his sense of adventure, and his passion for his work. It is an accessible story that still conveys the science of the original edition. It's a must-have for Wilson fans but will also reach a new generation of readers. A perfect gift for the comic book fan or budding naturalist on your list."
