Graham Matthews' Home Pages
  • Very pleasing visually
  • Needs more content
I stumbled onto Graham Matthews’ pages through a subset of them devoted to microscopy. There I discovered his interest in and talent for nature photography, and that led me to explore the rest of his pages. They bear the mark of a person who has many interests—gardening, radio, the environment, and others. The microscopy section appears to be the main interest, as judged by the number of entries and their frequency of updates. Using a vintage 1954 microscope, the author provides some stunning images of protozoans and other microbes. Not content to simply take images through the eyepiece, Graham dabbles with numerous technologies for imaging and comes up a winner for his efforts. Though there’s not much here besides images, there are a lot of them to appreciate.

Do you think that Hart-Chabris make a better argument for achieving success than the Chua-Rubenfeld theory?
