What makes us human? Ireland’s favourite scientist and biochemistry professor Luke O'Neill is here to tell you.

What do you have in common with the 7.75 billion other people on the planet? This is the question that Professor Luke O’Neill attempts to answer in this exciting new audiobook for young listeners, adapted from his bestselling title for adults, Humanology: A Scientist’s Guide to Our Amazing Existence. Starting with the origin of life and how we as a species evolved on the plains of Africa some 200,000 years ago, Professor Luke explores what makes us interesting as a species, why we sleep, laugh and enjoy music, and our efforts to stop disease. He also ponders whether we will create superhumans, how and why we age, if we can escape death and whether our eventual extinction is inevitable. With Luke’s trademark infectious enthusiasm – and plenty of laughs along the way – What Makes Us Human is the perfect audiobook for curious minds.

'A celebration of scientific fact in an era characterised by nebulous subjectivity.' (on Never Mind the B#ll*cks, Here's the Science)
The Irish Times

‘A man who can explain 4.2 billion years of life on Earth and make me laugh at the same time – sheer genius.’ (on Humanology)
