Lucky Number 7

The drama of the 5th. Edition has now ended. The book has gone to print, and I will be "grandfathernapping" the Professor for an imposed 3 day holiday early this coming week.

This is NOT recommended for light summer reading, but you can probably still sign up for his Molecular Evolution course in the fall :) You can click on the image to "embiggen". I love the new cover, except for the lizard which I voted against :)

It's difficult to imagine what goes into publishing a University text book. This has been going on since 1986..starting, in the old days, in Chapel Hill, NC. - Seven books ago and the fifth edition of this one. Congratulations to the Professor, and to all of us for surviving this long :)


  1. Congratulations to the Professor and best wishes for a wonderful few days off. Rest well as you will need your strength for zipping about with Zoë at the end of the month.

  2. What an achievement. Congratulations, Larry!-dm

  3. Congrats to the Professor both deserve a holiday now that the book is finished. And what a gorgeous cover; it actually makes me want to sign up for the Molecular Evolution course.

  4. Terrific!! Continue packing for Chautauqua to join all the other authors whose partners are enforcing some vaca time.

    See in in a week and a half!!! Can't wait.

  5. The "i's" are dotted and the "t's" crossed and it must give you both a great sense of relief. Congratulations! I love the cover too but it doesn't entice me to learn about Molecular Evolution. I'd rather have a beer with you Larry :-)
