Editorial Reviews

Review

"The popular-science section of your local bookshop is awash with a growing tide of anthologies that aim to answer life’s big questions. While [this book] is partly one of those (Why is the sky dark at night?), it also collects more general and considered fun-size essays, covering every imaginable facet of science, from cosmology to psychology via particle physics, medical curiosities and mathematical anomalies."  —Focus magazine

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Will Harvey on January 12, 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book reads very easily and the way the author shows the interconnection between various stories/questions/histories is interesting. However, the relentless injection of his political and moral beliefs is needless, distracting, and greatly detracts from an otherwise stimulating book.
