I love this book.

I find it an absolute joy to end the day by opening up Barely Imagined Beings to read a few pages before sleep and have my mind opened to the incredible wonder of the world. I sit in bed every few nights and absorb the un-shouty and profound ponderings that Caspar brings, that follow so easily from his poetic descriptions of the weird and wonderful ways that life finds ways to be. Dolphins can see through you, in 3D? The chicken is the nearest living relative to the Tyrannosaurus Rex? The eye evolved in all those different ways? (I fail to do justice relying on my memory from my desk at work)

This is one of the most fun to read and thought-provoking books I've ever read. And one of the most philosophically rich.

If you've a brain, can read, and have any capacity for awe and wonder, I can barely imagine that you won't be delighted by this :)
