Eye of the Shoal by Helen Scales

Eye of the Shoal by Helen Scales

Seven tenths of the earth’s surface is covered in water. This vast aquatic realm is inhabited by a multitude of strange creatures and reigning supreme among them are the fish.

In her wonderful new book, Helen Scales shares the secrets of fish, unhitching them from their reputation as cold-hearted, unknowable beasts and reinventing them as clever, emotional, singing, thoughtful animals, and challenging readers to rethink these animals. She takes readers on an underwater journey to watch them going about the hidden but glorious business of being a fish.

CHRISTMAS LECTURES from the Royal Institution

Drawing on the incredible archive here at the Ri, which is packed full of handwritten notebooks, photographs and transcripts, '13 Journeys through space and time' by Colin Stuart tells of the most captivating CHRISTMAS LECTURES given at the Ri on space and time, taking a look at what we thought we knew then and what has been discovered since. 

Taking eleven of the most exciting and revealing CHRISTMAS LECTURES on the natural world given at the Royal Institution, including Sir David Attenborough's animal-packed Lectures from 1977 and Richard Dawkins's explosive series on the evolution of life,  '11 Explorations into life on Earth' by Helen Scales takes an illuminating look at more than a hundred years of scientific exploration to discover the origins of life on our planet and the mysteries so far uncovered.
