NZ Review If Edward O. Wilson were actually an ant, he'd be the warrior and the drone and the queen and everyone else too. Anthill will remind people of all of his gifts and introduce them to some new ones!--Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 3 stars (out of 5)
