David Suzuki: The Autobiography
Suzuki, David T.
Allen & Unwin Academic 2006  2006 
  8vo softcover 404pp index, b/w illus. very good. The first volume of David Suzuki's autobiography, Metamorphosis, looked back at his life from 1986, when he was 50. In this eagerly awaited second installment, Suzuki, now 70, reflects on his entire life - and on his hopes for the future. The book begins with his life-changing encounters with racism while interned in a Canadian concentration camp during World War II and continues through his troubled teenage years and later successes as a scientist and host of PBS's The Nature of Things. With characteristic candor and passion, he describes his growing consciousness of the natural world and humankind's precarious place in it; his travels throughout the world and his meetings with international leaders, from Nelson Mandela to the Dalai Lama; and the abiding role of nature and family in his life. David Suzuki is an intimate and inspiring look at one of the most uncompromising people on the planet.

Eclipse: The Celestial Phenomenon Which Has Changed the Course of History
Steel, Duncan
ISBN: 0747262845
Headline Book Publishing 2000  2000 
  8vo softcover 384pp near fine. Since the Dawn of Time eclipses have been perceived as peculiarly portentous events. Whether they were seen as signs of divine displeasure or augurs of good fortune, a great deal was at stake when it came to predicting when next they might occur. Stonehenge may well have been built for this very purpose and all ancient civilisations set great store by keeping accurate records of these celestial shadow. Such extraordinary phenomena hold a powerful fascination for us all even today, and here Duncan Steel explains everything you will ever need to know about eclipses, their science and their significance to humankind. This fascinating and epic story - peopled by characters such as Julius Caesar, William Shakespeare, Christopher Columbus, and Albert Einstein - Stretches from ancient Babylon to the presen day and beyond....

Eight Little Piggies (Penguin Science S.)
Gould, Stephen Jay
ISBN: 0140179941
Penguin Books Ltd 1993  1993 
  8vo softcover 480pp index, b/w illus. very good, faded spine. This collection of essays ranges from history to the latest theories in biology, from controversies over palaeontology to the origins of language. The title is a pun and as always with Gould, the joke has a point that illustrates the largest pattern of life's history. For millennia, the animals that populated the Earth had four toes on each foot, or six. If evolution had taken a tiny shift - if man's ancestors had inherited a couple of genes in a different form - our canonical number, based on man's fingers and toes, might be eight instead of ten.
