Bookmark in Spalding has selected Human Universe by Professor Brian Cox and Andrew Cohen as its book of the week.

Human Universe witnesses Professor Brian Cox give an insight into the human universe as he tackles some of the most frequently asked questions about the world in which we live.

This book also asks questions itself, about our origins, our destiny, and our place in the universe.

Professor Brian Cox is a particle physicist and is best known for his work with the BBC as a science broadcaster.

Human Universe accompanies the acclaimed BBC hit TV series, produced by the co-writer Andrew Cohen.

Human Universe is first and foremost a love letter from Cox to humanity.

The love and fascination Cox has for the world we live in and its surroundings is thoroughly expressed within this book, with detailed explanations, examples and diagrams.

This book looks at the history of the human race, from two million years ago when we were ape-men to the present day as we are now, spacemen.

The book retails for £8.99 but there is 20 per cent off with the voucher in the Spalding Guardian of July 30.
