Editorial Reviews

Review

"I travel a lot around the world, I regularly follow the world's most notable news sources, and I often socialize with prominent intellectuals in various parts of the world, but the best short stories about science I encounter are those I find at home in my native Slovenia. The essays on science by my colleague Sašo Dolenc are not only fresh, exciting and entertaining but also very diverse, as they cover various topics from the social sciences and philosophy as well as technology, mathematics and the natural sciences. His books come closest to what we could call the royal road to knowledge." -- Renata Salecl, philosopher and author of The Tyranny of Choice
