Book Re­view

BBC Earth (Asia) - - Contents -

This month, we list out our favourite lit­er­a­ture from last year that you must add to your shelf

The sec­ond book on our list to tackle gender stereo­types, Saini dis­cusses how cen­turies of science have painted a dis­torted pic­ture of sex dif­fer­ences, the im­pact this has had on women in so­ci­ety, and how we’re fi­nally be­gin­ning to re­dress the bal­ance. Ev­ery breath we take tells a story as old as the Earth. Kean’s eye-open­ing guide to the science and his­tory of our at­mos­phere takes in ev­ery­thing from ra­dioac­tive pigs and spon­ta­neous com­bus­tion to Julius Cae­sar’s fi­nal mo­ments and some un­for­get­table per­for­mance art at the Moulin Rouge.
