Waterstones Says

A deeply fascinating compendium of lectures on the human brain delivered at the Royal Institution, 10 Voyages through the Human Mind gathers together two centuries worth of scholarship and opinion into a handsome hardback. Consistently illuminating, this is an ideal introduction to the evolution of neurological theory.      

The second in a series of books in association with the Royal Institution on their world-renowned Christmas Lectures, this time exploring the secrets of the natural world - with a foreword by Sir David Attenborough.

Following on from the success of 13 Journeys Through Space and Time, which took us on a voyage of astronomical discovery through past Christmas Lectures given at the Royal Institution on space and space exploration, this book turns our attention to our own planet and the animals, plants, fish, insects and all the other living things that inhabit it - how they've evolved and the vital roles they play in the intricate webs of life on earth.

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, we take 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.

“Fascinating”

This is a very interesting summary of a selection of Royal Institution Christmas Lectures between 1911 and 2009. What is striking is how early there are references to endangered species and climate change.... More
