Life - An Authorised Biography
Hay Festival 1998
Richard Fortey has written a vivid biography of life - a history spanning more than 3000 million years. Weaving his own lifetime as a palaeontologist into the story, he shows how life's past was one of reversals, chances gained and lost, occasional drama; more dramatic and engaging than a human lifetime, but governed by the same mix of genes and opportunity.
