Editorial Reviews

Review

“Tackles how humans are altering existing animal life. It has some good lines and is richly entertaining throughout, but under the surface it is pretty serious.'” ―Sunday Times

“Helen Pilcher takes on the unenviable task of describing how our species has been on a collision course, spanning roughly 300,000 years of history, with the rest of life on earth.
It shouldn't make for good reading but, mercifully, Pilcher is both very funny and very, very clever.” ―Gillian Burke, biologist and TV presenter

With warm wit and glorious pace, Life Changing delivers an eloquent commentary on this, the age of post-natural history. Expertly pulling together and detailing the work of hundreds of scientists around the world, Pilcher encourages us to ask timely questions about our role as stewards and curators of a planet struggling under our influence.” ―Jules Howard, naturalist, science writer and author of Death on Earth

“An impressive rendering of the disturbing history of human tinkering with nature.” ―
Kirkus Reviews

“Science writer Pilcher (Bring Back the King) delivers an agreeable account of how humans have bred and altered animals throughout history ... Popular science readers will find her work entertaining.” ―
Publishers Weekly

“Pilcher's amusing yet grounded excursion into the essential ways humans, animals, plants, and microorganisms must coexist is both a rich and riotous popular science trove well worth contemplating.” ―
Booklist

About the Author

Helen Pilcher is a tea-drinking, biscuit-nibbling science and comedy writer. She has a PhD in Cell Biology from London's Institute of Psychiatry. A former reporter for Nature, she now specializes in biology, medicine and quirky off-the-wall science, and writes for outlets including New Scientist and BBC Focus. Unusually for a self-proclaimed geek, Helen also used to be a stand-up comedian before the arrival of children meant she couldn't physically stay awake past 9pm. She now gigs from time to time, and lives in rural Warwickshire with her husband, three kids and besotted dog.
