The Nature Magpie: A Cornucopia of Facts, Anecdote&hellip by Daniel Allen
5.0 out of 5 stars Totally engrossing, 26 May 2013
'The Nature Magpie' is a fascinating book. It's filled with information on a wide variety of subjects that tempted me to delve deeper and do some research of my own. It's totally engrossing, absolutely brilliant, and I've learned a lot from it.

You'll be glad you did!

In `Edge of the Universe' he takes us on a fast-paced, heady cosmic adventure, teeming with twists, turns, solved and as yet unsolved mysteries. This reads like an edge-of-your-seat detective story, where the adventure spans the birth of our universe (and other universes), through the intriguing descriptions of its inhabitants throughout its evolution, to the possibilities that loom with its eventual demise.

Sparkling flashes of wit, humour and very clever analogies add extra zing to this fascinating book. Halpern had me laughing out… Read more
