Reviews

" [Jamison is] that rare writer who can offer a kind of unified field theory of science and art. . . . The origins and mystery of creativity have long been her holy grail, and she argues -- with her usual wit, ingenuity and panache -- that exuberance is one of its wellsprings." -- "The Washington Post Book World"
" Fascinating reading. . . . On a subject that invites inflates prose, Jamison maintains a deft but not showy eloquence. . . . Trenchant and entertaining." -- "San Francisco Chronicle"
" Jamison brilliantly conjures up characters. . . . A book on exuberance ought to be a romp to read. The one is." -- "Los Angeles Times"
" Jamison has a capacity for moving smoothly between tasty digressions, hard science and sweeping cultural analyses. . . . This reads like a book that was a long time in coming, written by one who came to appreciate the brightest sunlight only after becoming acquainted with the darkest nights." -- "The Seattle Times"

"From the Trade Paperback edition."
