A new, beautifully illustrated edition of David Attenborough’s groundbreaking Life on Earth.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the book’s first publication, David Attenborough has revisited Life on Earth, completely updating and adding to the original text, taking account of modern scientific discoveries from around the globe.
He has chosen beautiful, completely new photography, helping to illustrate the book in a much greater way than was possible forty years ago.
This special anniversary edition provides a fitting tribute to an enduring wildlife classic, destined to enthral the generation who saw it when first published and bring it alive for a whole new generation.
“A beautiful and wide ranging work. The breadth of natural history covered is extraordinary and mesmerising. Life on Earth is still breathtakingly rich, and we would know far less about it were it not for Attenborough’s wonderful skills of communication over the years: our cultural and scientific lives would be poorer without him” - New Scientist
“It does not disappoint. The new Life on Earth is as glorious as the first” - Guardian
