One woman's investigation into the whys and wherefores of snails

About the Author

Ruth Brooks' career has been in education. For 35 years she worked as a home tutor, supporting challenging and disadvantaged children and enabling them to uncover their hidden talents. Her dormant interest in science only bloomed in her seventieth year. In 2010, inspired by a passion for gardening and ecology, she entered a talent search run by the BBC programme Material World, and was awarded the title BBC Amateur Scientist of the Year. She loves the countryside, walking by the sea and, most of all, playing with her grandchildren. She lives in Devon.


A Slow Passion is sweet, informative and sure to cheer exhasperated gardeners * Financial Times *
Once in a while, a book innocently intrigues the head and beguiles the heart. This is one of them ... Warm-hearted, witty and rigorous * The Times *
A beautifully descriptive read, filled with childhood memories, extraordinary facts, and detailed illustrations * Western Daily Press *
It's the journey that makes this book special ... The moral of the tale is you're never too old or too uneducated to get out there and investigate. This is a hymn to a glorious kind of Englishness, in which the national pastimes of gardening, inquisitiveness and gumption win the day * Mail on Sunday *
A lovely reflection on the smaller, slower, simpler things in life * Top Sante Health & Beauty *
