What is motion?
Why is every snowflake different?
Why is life symmetrical?

To answer these and many other questions, Professor Brian Cox uncovers some of the most extraordinary natural events here on Earth and in the Universe beyond.

From the immensity of the Universe, the roundness of Earth to the shape of every single snowflake, the forces of nature shape everything we see. Pushed to extremes, the results are astonishing. In seeking to understand the everyday world, the colours, structure, behaviour and history of our home, we develop the knowledge and techniques necessary to step beyond the everyday and approach the Universe beyond.

From the great plains of the Serengeti, the volcanoes of Indonesia and the precipitous cliffs in Nepal, to the humpback whales of the Caribbean and the northern lights of the Arctic, Brian will answer questions on Earth that will illuminate our understanding of the Universe.

A breath-taking and beautiful exploration of our planet, this ground-breaking book accompanies the BBC1 TV series, providing the deepest answers to the simplest questions.

Think you know our planet?

Think again.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for Professor Brian Cox:

'Cox's romantic, lyrical approach to astrophysics all adds up to an experience that feels less like homework and more like having a story told to you. A really good story, too.' - Guardian

'He bridges the gap between our childish sense of wonder and a rather more professional grasp of the scale of things.' - Independent

'If you didn't utter a wow watching the TV, you will while reading the book.' - The Times

'Engaging, ambitious and creative.' - Guardian

'In this book of the acclaimed BBC2 TV series, Professor Cox shows us the cosmos as we have never seen it before - a place full of the most bizarre and powerful natural phenomena.' - Sunday Express

'Will entertain and delight ... what a priceless gift that would be.' - Independent on Sunday
