Author(s): Richard Walker
An exciting, unusual and thought-provoking exploration of what it means to be human, Who am I? looks at every aspect of our identity. Sweeping through biology, biotechnology, psychology and a range of social themes, with room for the astonishing and the bizarre, this is a book that delves deep into our notions of who we are. If you've ever wondered how we learn language, what light DNA studies can shed on ancient history, why so much money is spent on fighting the ageing process or how emotions help us interpret our world, this is the book for you. Fresh, engaging design and compelling question-and-answer text make this a book that will intrigue, inspire and inform. Includes puzzles, mind challenges and other interactive elements.
