The Crowd and the Cosmos: Books
I'm currently supposed to be on a book tour - which isn't happening. As I result, while I hope to get back on the road at some point, I have a small number of copies which I'd love to sign and send to you. If you can buy a book, I'd really appreciate it.

The Crowd and the Cosmos is 'a superbly written insight into the unique and powerful contribution enthusiasts from all walks of life can make to scientific knowledge' (says Brian Cox) and 'delightfully anecdotal, inclusive and witty' (says Brian May). It tells the story of how I, a distracted astronomer, try to understand the Universe with the help of more than a million volunteers, concentrating mostly on our attempt to understand galaxies, find planets and occasionally stumble across what might be aliens.

To make these lockdown editions special, each comes with a specially designed and printed bookplate by my friend Emily Carrington Freeman (which you can see below).

Books are £20 + £3 postage in the UK. Please go to to pay - you don't need a paypal account - and fill in the form below with your details. I will dispatch them as soon as possible - likely after the lockdown ends.

If you'd like the book shipped internationally, then please go ahead and I'll be in touch with details of additional postage costs.

Thanks for your support.

(PS If you'd like the book sooner, it's available - without bookplate or signature - from Blackwells: and all good online bookstores) or on audible :
