Recommended by Heywood Hill Reader Sir Crispin Tickell:
In the sweep of history since life and eventually humans began, a fascinating story emerges which changes everything. A day in the life of Adam and Eve leads on to the transformation caused by the industrial revolution and the singularity which may eventually bring about the end of our species. Clearly and admirably written, this book makes us think differently about yesterday, today and even tomorrow.
