Description

"I, Mammal is just the sort of book that can spark a love of nature and an appreciation for the ever-changing, eternally correcting march of science." - Science

"A splendid evolutionary study. . . Drew is a wry guide to wonders such as the evolution of the scrotum and the epic journey of marsupial newborns." - Nature

"Drew's immersion makes one proud to be a mammal." - Nancy Bent, Booklist

"An excellent combination of scientific principle and comedic wit that will appeal to biology fans and non-scientists alike. An excellent read." - How It Works

"Drew vividly conveys the excitement of scientific discovery [and] combines detailed technical information with interesting natural-history tidbits. There's much to be savoured by scientists and nonscientists alike." - Publishers Weekly

"From ice-sliding bison and tail-biting platypuses to cats and bats, hedgehogs and hooded seals, I, Mammal will change the way you think about hairy, milk-making, warm-blooded animals (yourself included). This carnival of mammals is science writing at its most funny, companionable and smart." - Helen Scales, marine biologist, broadcaster and author of Spirals in Time

"Not only fun and instructive but also wonderfully written, I, Mammal takes us on an erudite journey through mammalian evolution. Liam Drew effortlessly weaves science together with all manner of often very funny anecdotes. Reading it will be a pleasure for scientists and non-specialists alike." - Ren� Hen, Professor of Neuroscience and Psychiatry, Columbia University
