About the Author:

A household name thanks to popular TV series that include The Human Body, which won three baftas, Superhuman, Walking with Cavemen and The Human Mind, Lord Winston's pioneering work in the field of human fertility helped thousands of childless couples have "miracle babies" and earned him an outstanding international reputation. A winner of the Royal Society's prestigious Michael Faraday Gold Award, he was made a life peer in 1995. He is Emiritus Professor of Fertility Studies at Imperial College London, and an active researcher in reproductive physiology.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* Dense with exciting scientific detail, this large picture-book-size volume focuses in its first half on Darwin’s discoveries and theories, and the excitement and the controversy that they generated in his time. Then biologist Winston goes on to discuss the modern science of genetics and evolutionary biology, including what Darwin did not consider and what he knew little about; the many new discoveries that prove Darwin right and that continue to fuel debate; and the role of DNA in helping to fill in the gaps. The clear, interactive, double-page spreads in the publisher’s signature style pack in a wealth of very technical information with lots of gorgeous color photos, screens, and boxed inserts. Also included is a detailed six-page time line of the planet over four million years. Readers can browse through and delve into the geology and biology facts that grab them, and then follow some of the “Now try this!” suggestions, such as “How to find out what was living in your neighborhood 250,000 years ago.” As accessible as it is informative, this is a great title for classroom browsing and sharing. Grades 5-8. --Hazel Rochman
