Description
Life on planet Earth is weirder than we are capable of imagining, suggests Simon Barnes, and to prove his point, he introduces us to mollusks the size of buses, amorous slugs, bdelloid rotifers that haven't had sex for millions of years, and tardigrades—tiny creatures that can be boiled, frozen, and fired off into space without dying. Referencing Charles Darwin and David Attenborough but also James Joyce and Douglas Adams, Barnes brings together a miscellany of the world's creatures, admiring their diversity while seeking the unifying traits of them all.

"Barnes is a unique voice, always willing to challenge conventional wisdom and look for deeper meanings."—The Sunday Telegraph (UK)
