Product Details


“If you don’t want to be surprised by extraterrestrial life, look no further than this lively overview of the laws of evolution that have produced life on earth. Assuming these laws to be universal, Arik Kershenbaum predicts what alien organisms might look like.” —Frans de Waal, author of Mama’s Last Hug: Animal Emotions and What They Tell Us about Ourselves

“A fun, and thoroughly biological, exploration of possible and impossible alien beings. If you’d love to know what real aliens from other planets might really be like, this is the book for you.” —Susan Blackmore, author of Seeing Myself

“Surveying the deep-time of evolution on Earth and his own cutting-edge research into animal communication, Kershenbaum provides a fascinating insight into the deepest of questions: what might an alien actually look like.” —Lewis Dartnell, author of Origins

“Evolutionary theory helps us explain patterns in the past, and combined with a rich understanding of natural history and biodiversity, predict what might be discovered in the future. Arik Kershenbaum takes us on a joyous voyage of animal diversity and illustrates the singular importance of natural selection in explaining life—here on Earth—and what will likely be discovered throughout the galaxy. A stimulating read!” —Daniel T. Blumstein, Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of California Los Angeles
