About the Author

Dr. Alice Roberts is an anatomist, osteoarchaeologist, anthropologist, television presenter, author, and professor at the University of Birmingham. She has presented The Incredible Human Journey and Coast on BBC 2 and Inside Science on Radio 4. She lives in Bristol with her husband and two children.


"A masterful account of why our bodies are the way they are ...Roberts skilfully and knowledgeably weaves embryology, genetics, anatomy, evolution and zoology to tell the incredible story of the human body... It is in comparative anatomy that this book really shines ... Roberts's anatomical expertise is seductive... This is a scientifically robust book, packed with up-to-date and historical research, and in no way trivial. But it is a long distance from ponderous, and Roberts's lightness of touch is joyous, and celebratory."--Adam Rutherford, The Guardian
"Roberts's engagingly personal style connects you to your ancestors, to your own personal beginnings as a single cell and, in a most attractive way, to herself as an author of great charm. From your brain to your fingertips, you emerge from her book entertained and with a deeper understanding of yourself."--Richard Dawkins, bestselling author of The Selfish Gene, The God Delusion, and The Magic of Reality

"Alice Roberts tells us about the most amazing story on the planet--the creation of the human animal. Nothing is more extraordinary and her guided tour of the human body takes us on a fascinating journey of self-discovery."--Desmond Morris, biologist, artist, and bestselling author of The Naked Ape
