Life on planet earth is not weirder than we imagine.
It's weirder than we are capable of imagining.And we're all in it together: humans, blue whales, rats, birds of paradise, ridiculous numbers of beetles, molluscs the size of a bus, bdelloid rotifers who haven't had sex for millions of years and creatures called water bears: you can boil them, freeze them and fire them off into space without killing them.In this breathtakingly audacious book, Simon Barnes opens our eyes to the real marvels of the planet we live on.
