Reason for Everything

Natural Selection and the British Imagination

Marek Kohn
NZD $36.99

'An educative and fascinating tale. Kohn is a wonderful writer.' - A.C. Grayling, Literary Review

A Reason for Everything is a brilliant and surprising fusion of science and biography. It is a very human book about the Britishness of evolutionary theory and the lives and personalities - often eccentric and controversial - of those who made it.
