Two new non-fiction books – great gifts, Christmas fast approaches!


Francis Birtles

You might not know his name but Francis Birtles should be an Australian legend. He was a bushman, cyclist, motorist, soldier, sailor, photographer, author, movie-make and an unmitigated rogue.

‘The Scientists: An Epic of Discovery’ is beautiful hardcover book full of wonderful illustrations, 220 of them, and the stories of great scientists and their discoveries. The book spans the centuries with Copernicus, Galileo, Faraday, Crick and Watson – the discoverers of DNA, Alan Turing – the father of computer scince, Charles Darwin, Freud and many more. Our modern world simply would not exist if had not been for the amazing discoveries and thoughts covered in this very handsome book. Another great gift idea!
