Biology: the science of the 21st century. This is a glowing shining light of everything our planet has to offer. Through every word, and through every stunning illustration by Cecile Girardin, we feel what it's like to be in the lecture theatre of the University of Oxford, where Lindsay Turnbull teaches biology. You feel the joy of biology, appreciate the unimaginable wonders, and understand the incredible results of evolution's creative frenzy.

Making the immensity of biology manageable, Turnbull has created a book that is enjoyable, beautiful and important. With no slavish chronology, Turnbull tells her story in a way that makes it easier to understand, even for little ol' me who really did not enjoy biology at school.

Taking you on a journey from the tiny titans that are cells through to evolution, sex, energy, bacteria, eukaryotes, animals, vertebrates, plants and ecology - this is a veritable feast of a book that you'll want to come to again and again. And I'll definitely be pressing this into the hands of my 15 year old son next.

Understand and enjoy the whole story of biology told in a wonderful new way for the first time, for anyone curious about the story of life.
