Darryl Jones is fascinated by birds and covers 139 different types in his book. He provides information on the habitats, similar species, ecology, features and interactions with humans plus high quality photos to help you identify the birds in your neighbourhood.

DR RIP'S ESSENTIAL BEACH BOOK

Rob Brander shares his comprehensive knowledge about everything related to surf from the different types of waves and currents, to how beaches form and behave; and what to do if you're ever caught in a rip.

FAKING IT

Toby Walsh investigates the impact of artificial intelligence and the ethics that will arise from its increased use. He discusses the blurred lines between artificial intelligence and reality.

EATING THE EARTH

Justyn Walsh discusses the impact that relying on fossil fuels is having on the environment; and argues that although their use has been a good thing we need to move away from their use to protect the earth.

SILK AND VENOM

James O'Hanlon loves spiders and covers all facets of them from where you can find them - in your backyard, around the world, and even underwater through to the different species and qualities of their venom.
