Comments & Further Information

Very faint crease running from top to bottom of front cover. In his characteristically iconoclastic and original way, the bestselling author of Wonderful Life and Bully for Brontosaurus argues that progress and increasing complexity are not inevitable features of the evolution of life on earth. Further, if we wish to see grandeur in life, we must discard our selfish and anthropocentric view of evolution and learn to see it as Darwin did, as the random but unfathomably rich source of ‘endless forms most beautiful and wonderful’.
