5.0 out of 5 stars H is for Hummus, 18 Oct 2013
I found this to be a very funny little book that I'm certain will appeal to children and adults alike. Mums and Dads will undoubtedly relate to the picture it paints of everyday life with young kids and how it turns the routine and joy of parenthood into something hilarious! It's beautifully illustrated as well. A great Christmas gift for any modern-day parent!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Compatibility Gene (Hardcover), 26 Sep 2013
This review is from: The Compatibility Gene (Hardcover)
Daniel Davis has written a first rate - and very enjoyable - account of a complex biological system - the immune system. The book works on many levels. Not only does Davis lucidly explain the science - he manages to convey the excitement and tension of scientific discovery and - importantly - the process of scientific discovery itself. These two elements of the book are intertwined brilliantly. The science follows a logical course, taking us from the basics right through to the edge of knowledge and current areas of research. All the while, as the scientific story unfolds, it is interspersed with the biographies, thoughts and feelings of the key scientists making it read like a thriller. The book has colour, humour and insight and, overall, is extremely well written.
