'The beauty of this book is that it reclaims the most profound reality that any of us know -- the reality of our selves -- from a scientific world that seeks to deny choice, wonder, and mystery. Le Fanu infuses his book with a sense of the miraculous!It is impossible to express how refreshing I found this beautifully written and profound book!The fact that these rarely stated realities are so superbly brought to life here makes this a brave, brilliant and fascinating book.' Tim Lott, Sunday Telegraph '"Why Us?" explores the fascinating ramifications of these insights, from explaining the gaps in the theory of evolution to re-examining the notion of a human soul. Le Fanu's argument is simple and compelling; a bold attempt to reunite science with a sense of wonder.' Sunday Times 'Enthralling!One of the glories of Le Fanu's scientifically erudite and beautifully written book is that such a sense of wonder is evident on every page, even as he lucidly analyses the limitations of that narrow intellectual prison in which science has languished too long.' Christopher Booker, Spectator
