Description

Almost Everyone's Guide to Science is for anyone who is vaguely aware that science is important - interesting even - but who feels daunted by the technical detail. John Gribbin, as author and reader, provides us with a broad picture of the scientific achievement so far and tells the story which has developed in less than 400 years from a belief that the world is governed by magic, to a coherent world view which encompasses everything from the structure of particles within the atom to the origins of our own species and the birth of the Universe itself. 'John Gribbin is a blessing to all of us who want to know about science but feel nervous at the prospect' He makes the difficult accessible, and brings to people who have little grounding a map of the world of science.' Melvyn Bragg.show more
