This book is ABSOLUTELY essential for everyone - whether you like maths/science or hate maths/science or are indifferent to maths/science. Or to the wonders of the world. For everyone who thinks a scientist understands a rainbow too well to fall in love with it.
The book teaches you in the oldest, best way possible - through stories & anecdotes ans puzzles - to open your mind to everything around you. When you wonder next why a flame goes up, or how to do the magician's tablecloth trick, or how to fool your 8-year old cousin, or how to ALWAYS win in a game of odds'n'evens, how chess was invented, or how long to wait for a bus. It's not just laboratory science, but also party tricks and philosophical questions which lead to the first principles of scientific thought - to question Everything around you, and then to figure out the answers.
