“First, England’s loss is North America’s gain. The writing is clear, evocative, inspiring. It appeals to the caring naturalist be s/he expert or neophyte. Is Mr. Simpson (no relation to the infamous “Mrs. Simpson,” one hopes) our next David Attenborough? Would the garden writers (no names, but consult each Saturday’s Globe and Mail newspaper) cease shilling for the plant-related industry and talk about nature in the loving, caring manner as Mr. Simpson does.”

“I found Mike to be the best [teaching assistant] I’ve ever had. He consistently went above and beyond the call of duty. He had a thorough knowledge of the course and whatever he didn’t know he went out of his way to find out. I really enjoyed his dry British witticisms. “The proof is in the pudding!” Brilliant!”
