About this title


The versatile mini edition is just like the larger, critically acclaimed original edition but it fits snugly into the palm of a hand, and includes a multiple choice quiz in back and a handheld magnifier

With more than 1,000 illustrations, this remarkable book tells the complete story of natural history from the formation of the Earth to the latest breakthroughs in evolutionary science. On one side the 4.5 billion year timeline presents a unique illustrated guide to the past, cleverly linking subjects together from asteroids to algae. Streams of color represent key themes, including land, sea, and sky, and provide a backdrop to all the major events of natural history. On the reverse side a second timeline identifies the people behind the science and highlights key moments in the understanding of natural science from Aristotle to the present day. Perfect for younger readers but also relevant to all ages, this comprehensive, accessible, and versatile wallbook is the first ever attempt to illustrate the entire history of nature and natural science on a single piece of paper. This postcard-sized edition also contains a new mind-boggling 100-question multiple choice quiz on the back—the answers can all be found somewhere on the timeline.

About the Author:

Christopher Lloyd is the former technology correspondent for the Sunday Times, and the author of What on Earth Evolved? and What on Earth Happened? Andy Forshaw illustrated all of the What on Earth? books.
