  • The David Attenborough of things that don't move ... Think of it as his Blue Planet

    Bryan Appleyard, Sunday Times
  • He shows how human beings have always used religion and objects as a way to understand the world around us, from finding some accommodation with light, water and the seasons, to attempting to find some approach towards death. ... Anyone wishing to deepen, if not change their life, will certainly benefit from this remarkable book

    Douglas Murray, Evening Standard
  • A mind-expanding book

    John Carey, Sunday Times
