In accessible language, Gillian tells, for the first time, the complete story of the epic quest to solve the great mystery of Earth’s magnetism, from the fascination of ancient Greeks with magnetised rocks to the astonishing modern discoveries that finally revealed the truth. North Pole, South Pole gives us an extraordinary window into science, passion and the brilliance of the human mind.

‘When you read a book like North Pole, South Pole, the solid Earth shifts beneath your feet...This is a clearly written, well-illustrated primer on this important and under-publicized area of science.’ - Nicholas Reid, Sunday Star Times
