`I was thrilled by Survivors.... Reading Richard Fortey is always pure pleasure.' Bill Bryson `Fortey has a unique way with the most humble of lifeforms and an infectious curiosity that can slide into near rapture' Evening Standard `An epic, globe-circling scientific adventure story ... intriguing. Entertaining, accessible and intensely stimulating - and highly recommended' Sunday Times `A great story, and no one is better equipped than Fortey to tell it. Excellent natural history' Guardian `Unequivocally my book of the year, a happy mix of global travel, high art and very low life' Tim Radford, Books of the Year, Guardian `An elegant celebration' TLS
