His latest book is Barefoot Books World Atlas.
One of Crane's top ten books about the planet, as told to the Guardian:
A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill BrysonRead about the other books on the list.
Bill's a national treasure, though we've borrowed him really, because he's American. Every school library in the land ought to own a copy because this is core science at its most fun. Bill takes his readers on a journey, and we meet a lot of very strange, brilliant people like Edwin Hubble, Henri Becquerel and a chap called Einstein. The clever thing about Bill's book is that he visits many of the places he writes about. So hydrothermal explosions are explained during a trip to Yellowstone with a geologist called Doss, who rides a Harley Davidson. Why weren't my school science books like this, please sir?
A Short History of Nearly Everything is one of Paul McEuen's six favorite books and Linda Greenlaw's favorite books.
