Past winners

Over the decades, an incredible community of authors and judges have been involved with the Prize and the longlisted, shortlisted and winning titles have created a lasting legacy.   

Whether you would like to find out more about the impact of humans on our planet, journey into the information age or explore the universe, there is something to interest everyone. 

Our 2020 winner Dr Camilla Pang, author of Explaining Humans, won the Prize for laying out life’s everyday interactions through a set of scientific principles, showing how thinking differently can be a superpower instead of a disability. Camilla Pang shows readers how proteins, machine learning and molecular chemistry can teach us about the complexities of human behaviour and the world around us.
