Hölldobler and Wilson have carefully distilled more than 80 years of their combined personal research and thorough knowledge of the literature to produce a book that is both packed with ideas and information and a joy to read. The authors subtitled their book ‘A Story of Scientific Exploration’ and, like all good stories, it has a logical progression and sensible themes and is hard to put down.—C. Ronald Carroll, American Scientist

Beautifully written and illustrated… These fifteen chapters are a bustling but well-organized ant heap, full of wonders natural and intellectual.—Philip Morrison, Scientific American

Everyone should read Journey to the Ants; it is a book to read right through; I have done so twice so far. It brings back the joy of science and restores the sense of wonder, it is truly food for thought. For me it is a beloved book that will stay at my bedside.—James E. Lovelock, The Times Higher Education Supplement
