The UK’s premier prize winner

The UK's premier prize for science books has been won by Gaia Vince - the first female writer to claim the award outright in its near 30-year history. Adventures in the Anthropocene is her record of the people and places she encountered on a huge global tour. The book details how humans are altering the planet, but it also tells the stories of how we are learning to limit and cope with that change. The Royal Society Winton Prize is worth £25,000 to the winner.
