'Deeper understanding' writes Professor Brian Cox, 'confers that most precious thing - wonder'. This beautifully illustrated book offers a scientist's exploration of life on earth, from its origins to the immense diversification and sophistication of the plant and animal kingdoms as they are now. The book accompanied the BBC TV series presented by Cox, who, in the words of the Independent, 'bridges the gap between our childish sense of wonder and a rather more professional grasp of the scale of things'.
