characters Wonders of Life ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Brian Cox ¶ 6 characters Free read Wonders of Life Al bestselling author Brian Cox explains how the astonishing inventiveness of nature came about and uncovers the milestones in the epic journey from the origin of life to our own lives with beautiful full color illustrations throughout From spectacular fountains of superheated water at the bottom of the Atlantic to. A glossy weighty tome that covers a vast range of subjects in bite sized chunks of a few pages at time I read the five chapter book alongside watching the five episode series which although they cover a lot of similar ground in a different order complement each other well enough to warrant watching and reading them both The book is obviously much much detailed certainly with regards to the biological details of evolution and the various example creatures Although this is a pretty high brow book it s surprisingly accessible and certainly not packed with euations and maths Anyone could find plenty to learn therein probably even scientists and the photosdiagrams are attractive enough to draw in even the least scholarly child despite the electron micrographs of eg retinas being a bit ickyEagle eyed geek that I am I managed to find a few tiny typos and mistakes such as the positioning on the right of the big diagram on p186 7 and the tablegraph on p154 5 not uite correlating Pallet on p48 made me laugh too Slip ups aside this is a wonderful book well worth 25 considering the time and effort that must ve gone into it and I heartily applaud the Reithian paragraph on the last page too I just enjoyed Human Universe that little bit 4755
