|A copy of 30-Second Biology, recently. The Python (Monty) is extra.|
It's a compilation of fifty topics in biology, from Archaea to Genetics, Excretion to Phylogeny, always there when you want a brief exposition of some toothsome topic in biology. I can imagine it'll be handy for the GCSE or A-level student in your life. And the pictures are tremendous. Here is an inside spread.
Mr B. C. of Swindon, who can only have been brought in to raise the tone, as he's a physicist. No matter. I commend this book to the house.
