It's all about the back-room curiosities and anecdotes from the Natural History Museum.
It's a great read - interesting, intriguing, odd, anecdotal, and very well written. You can fly through it. It's the kind of thing you'll look forward to re-reading in six months time.
Well worth the ten quid it cost and the week or two it will take you to read it.

At just £3 for a whopping 850 pages it was a baaaar-gain!
And what a fucking brilliant book! Seriously, if you've not read it then you really must. It is so well written. I know it was a recent TV series but I never saw it (I wonder if it's on BBC iplayer...), but the book is just sooooooooo good in soooooooo many ways.
