Product description

Review

Praise for Henry Nicholls: brilliantly clear and enthusiastic...Henry Nicholls manages to combine detail with passion (David Shukman, BBC)

Expertly weaves anecdote and science (Tom Whipple The Times)

Nicholls' passion for his subject and sense of humour are always evident (Paul Chambers The Times Literary Supplement)

The most in-depth and accessible insight into narcolepsy that I've come across. (Dan Collins, Fresh Tracks)

what good science writing is all about - explanation through a ripping narrative. (Steve Connor The Independent)

Sleepyhead represents a successful attempt by Henry to provide a concise, readable and scientific overview of the sleep disorders most prominent within society, as well as sleep in general...By shedding a light on the most disabling-end of narcolepsy, of cataplexy, of sleep apnoea and so forth, Henry has provided a voice for those that were previously ignored. (Jonathan Watkins Myza)

[Nicholls] has the skill, rare among scientists, of explaining science in a clear and appealing manner. His writing is easygoing yet informative, and will be accessible to any reader with an interest (Fintan Enright Irish Examiner)

Praise for The Galapagos: This is the perfect book to take with you if you are planning a trip to the Galapagos. Even if you are not, this is an enchanting and enlightening account of the most scientifically significant islands in the world. (Tim Birkhead)

Thoroughly researched, highly informative, lively and enjoyable, each page is a real pleasure to read. Whether a first time visitor or an old Galapagos 'hand' Henry Nicholls' The Galapagos should accompany you on any physical or virtual trip to these Enchanted Islands (Ian Dunn, Chief Executive Officer, Galapagos Conservation Trust)

A thoughtfully executed and excellent read. (Johannah Barry, president of the Galapagos Conservancy)
