Brian Clegg

The science of what makes you you. See yourself in a new light.

In What Do You Think You Are?, popular science master Brian Clegg investigates what makes you the unique individual that you are. From the atomic level, through life itself to consciousness, genetics and personality, we explore how each aspect of you – your DNA, your memories, your flesh and bone – has come to be.

Full of fascinating true stories – featuring royal ancestors, stellar deaths, real-life hobbits and a self-reproducing crayfish, to name a few – this wide-ranging exploration of what makes you you is a one-of-a-kind voyage of (self) discovery.

Find out just how remarkable you are.

The most interesting part is when the book explores what consciousness is (or, rather, highlights how little we know about it but still shows how much more there is to ‘us’ than the conscious part) and pulls apart the old nature versus nurture debate with some remarkable material on genetics and how the influence of our environment is mathematically chaotic.
