Have ever visited the jungles of Costa Rica or Panama and wished you had some type of guide book that could explain what you saw there? Why do we find so many plants, trees, birds and insects in the neotropics? Why is it so hot and wet? How come the butterflies are so big? Tonight on Inquiry, we talk with JOHN KRICHER, professor of biology at Wheaton College,  about his stunning new book THE NEW NEOTROPICAL COMPANION. Written for the lay person, this beautiful book will introduce you to the plants and animal life and complex ecosystems of this unique region of the planet. Don’t leave home without this book!

“If dating is poetry, then marriage is a novel” writes tonight’s guest on Inquiry. Why do we get married and why do we stay married? “The main problem with marriage is that it’s not better than the rest of your life” writes tonight’s guest, writer and journalist ADA CALHOUN. Calhoun was well into her second decade of marriage, when she started to wonder what we are getting out of marriage. Her new book is a frank and honest meditation on the institution: WEDDING TOASTS I’LL NEVER MAKE.
