Matt Wilkinsons takes a fascinating look at movement. This is a rather novel perspective of the now commonly boring subject of evolution that injects new life and ideas into the subject. The author manages to discuss topics and provide examples that I haven't come across before in other popular science books. As a bonus, the author also assumes his readers have some intelligence and doesn't insult us by simplifying things too much. Restless Creatures covers all sorts of creatures, from the large to the smallest, and also includes plants which one wouldn't expect to be included in a book on movement. The writing is beautiful, descriptive, non-biographical (thank you!!) and the author has a way with words that adds humorous twists to old perspectives. I found this book enjoyable to read and I learned new things!
