Product description

Review

Review from previous edition Wideranging, intelligent and non-dogmatic trilogy of books. (Martin Kemp, Times Literary Supplement)

Philip Ball gives us some very interesting food for thought. (Mark Ronan, Standpoint)

Ball has opened a welcome window on a little-understood but thought-provoking aspect of the making of the natural world. (Alan Cane, Financial Times)

Fascinating detail. (The Economist)
