Summary, etc.:
The globetrotting naturalists of the eighteenth century were the geeks of their day: innovators and explorers who lived at the intersection of science and commerce. Foremost among them was Carl Linnaeus, a radical thinker who revolutionized biology. Beil offers a vivid glimpse into the life of one of modern science's founding thinkers.
