Review Text

It had to happen - and who better to do it than John Gribbin? Slightly larger than The Little Book of Calm and all its cousins, The Little Book of Science offers 52 snappy scientific items, covering the obvious (DNA, the origin of the universe), the less obvious (Bishop Berkeley's bucket) and the totally unexpected (the Jupiter effect). Eclectic, informative and fun. (Kirkus UK)show more
