Science & nature
From the earth to the sea and into outer space, the best way to learn about the world(s) around us is through books. Yuval Noah Harari’s Sapiens and Bill Bryson’s The Body introduce the wonders of human beings. Nature books including The Salt Path by Raynor Winn, Underland by Robert MacFarlane and Otherlands by Thomas Halliday will show the beauty of our planet. Learn to tap into your inner activist with some of the the best books on climate change, including Greta Thunberg’s The Climate Book and No One Is Too Small to Make a Difference. And for a little science and books about the universe, turn to Stephen Hawking’s class A Brief History of Time, or head into space with former astronaut Tim Peake’s books.
