The Descent of Man

The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex is a book on evolutionary theory by English naturalist Charles Darwin, first published in 1871. It was Darwin's second book on evolutionary theory, following his 1859 work, On the Origin of Species, in which he explored the concept of natural selection. In The Descent of Man, Darwin applies evolutionary theory to human evolution, and details his theory of sexual selection, a form of biological adaptation distinct from, yet interconnected with, natural selection. The book discusses many related issues, including evolutionary psychology, evolutionary ethics, differences between human races, differences between sexes, the dominant role of women in choosing mating partners, and the relevance of the evolutionary theory to society.

Why We Should Go Vegan

We should go vegan! That is the unambiguous conclusion of this short book. This conclusion is reached through a broad examination of the consequences of our not being vegan - both in relation to human health, environmental pollution, the risk of the spread of diseases, and in relation to the animals we farm and kill. On all these levels the conclusion is clear: We have no good reason to not go vegan, while we have many good reasons to stop our practice of raising, killing and eating animals and things from them. The bottom line: We have a strong ethical obligation to go vegan, and that is true even if we only care about ourselves and our fellow human beings. "Magnus Vinding makes a compelling case for ending the abuse of other sentient beings. What will we tell our grandchildren? ("But I liked the taste?")" - David Pearce, founder of BLTC Research and co-founder of Humanity+, author of 'The Hedonistic Imperative'. "An excellent concise statement of the arguments for going vegan." - Peter Singer, Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University, author of 'The Life You Can Save: Acting Now to End World Poverty' and 'Animal Liberation'.

The giant short-faced bear existed up until 11,000 years ago. It is believed to be the largest carnivorous mammal to have ever lived.

A bear's sense of smell is seven times better than a bloodhound's!

In spite of being classified as carnivores, about 75% to 85% of a bear's diet is made up of plants.

Bears do eat honey, although they do not like it as much as Winnie the Pooh does. In fact, they prefer to eat the baby bees when they do stumble upon a beehive.

Contrary to popular belief, bears are not nocturnal. In fact, most of them are active during the day.

Bears tend to walk in their own tracks. This means that an area frequented by bears may have only one set of tracks, but the paw prints will appear sunken as if they have been beaten into the soil.

Nature Calls: a yearly nature spotting guide (preschool nature wild animals picture book)

Do you know what is in your garden? who slinks around your park? which animals leave footprints in the snow? and what noises they make? Nature Calls gives you a sneaky peak into the lives of wild animals and birds that live in Britain all year round and some, that are just visiting. A nonfiction nature and science book for everyone aged over 3.

Q&As with the author:

Q. What makes Nature Calls special?

A. I spent many hours listening to bird audio and animal noises and interpreted them into words (phonics), so when you are looking at this nature spotter with your children, you can learn to recognise what each one sounds like. You can often hear birds or animals without actually seeing them, so this is a great way to identify who is in the bushes or high up in the trees.

If you'd like a copy of this free nature book as a children's ebook, all you have to do is download it. If you'd like a signed paperback copy, just have a look at my website store. Nature Calls is perfect for preschool children from age 3 years and over.

Q. Why should I give your books a try?

A. I have been an illustrator for nearly a zillion years (or so it feels!) and I LOVE drawing wildlife. I always 'see' a book before I write it, and you will know what I mean when you have a look at my books. I am also intensely interested in education - so I always slip a sneaky way to learn things into my stories. My customers and reviews tell me how much they love my books, how 'each page is a smorgasbord, a real treat for little readers' and 'I could not wait to turn the pages and see the antics, marvellous illustrations. This is a must read for all small people, and their grandparents.'

Q. Do you have other books?

A. Yes - loads, and all but The Golden Stone can be purchased as paperback books too.
