About the Author

Christopher Lloyd read history at Cambridge, where he graduated with a double-first, before becoming technology correspondent for the Sunday Times. In 1994 he won the Texaco award for the Science Journalist of the Year. After leaving journalism, he ran a number of internet and educational publishing businesses. In 2006 he decided to home-school his two daughters, and the inspiration to write his first book, What On Earth Happened?, published in 2008, came during a four-month tour of Europe with his family.


'Clever, well-informed, witty and interesting' New Scientist Books of the Year PRAISE FOR WHAT ON EARTH HAPPENED? 'An ambitious history of the planet from the Big Bang to the present day' Daily Telegraph Books of the Year 'This snappy history of our planet tells you something new on virtually every page' Independent 'This engaging history of our planet is ambitious, but Christopher Lloyd pulls it off. He is brisk and pithy with the past ... like having Marx, Malthus and Darwin around for dinner and really very enjoyable' Toby Clements, Daily Telegraph
