  • I really enjoyed this book I have looked forward to Klose s essays in the CS Monitor, and was excited to see this book come out Even though I think the author must be just about my age, while I was reading this I was thinking, wow I wish I could have had him as a teacher in high school or college Klose teaches biology at a small college in Maine This book contains some random musings on life, students, science I enjoy his sense of humor This was my favorite quote from the book I have sometimes t [...]


  • Absolutely loved the essays I laughed I moaned with dismay I learned a lot There was only one chapter that was to, to me, not memorable It was a chapter with too much science talk The rest had pathos, stories, humor, all connected seamlessly in a conversational manner with exquisite segues Our book club just spent an hour Skyping with Mr Klose who was as charming in person as he was on the page My husband is going to use the chapter on study tips with his college students All in all, a terrific [...]
