With wry wit and real clarity, geneticist Steve Jones examines the Sun and our relationship to it. It's a nimble narrative, from the physics of the hydrogen bomb in the sky to its impact on the biosphere, water cycle, food chain, human health and climate change. Jones braids in gripping storylines - on conditions linked to lack of sunlight (such as the bone disease rickets) and the interplay between night, day and sleep - and many throwaway gems, from primates urinating on themselves to stay cool, to the boiling-porridge turbulence of convection on the solar surface * Nature *


A richly readable guide to all things solar . . . one of the country's best writers of popular science. His wit, insight and ability to home in on a subject's most memorable facts enliven Here Comes The Sun from the start. * Daily Mail * With wry wit and real clarity, geneticist Steve Jones examines the Sun and our relationship to it.
