Once We All Had Gills

by Rudolf A Raff

Bloomington (IN): Indiana University Press, 2012. 354 pages.

According to reviewer Scott F Gilbert, “it is well worth while to read this book for many reasons. One is to read of a life, a life in science, well lived. But this is not only an autobiography of Rudolf Raff; it is a biography of contemporary embryology and how it, too, has changed during the past half-century. Moreover, this is a book about natural history as path to science.”
