Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Lliana Bird presents a weekly music show on Radio X, blogs regularly for The Huffington Post and is an avid science enthusiast who studied Experimental Psychology at university. She believes that science could be the new rock'n'roll and is on a slightly wonky mission to prove it. She is also the co-founder of the charity 'Help Refugees', plays a mean game of poker and has a healthy obsession with cheese.
Dr Jack Lewis is a born and bred Londoner who studied neuroscience at university, going on to scan brains for three years to earn his Ph.D. Jack has been a science presenter on many TV series; culminating in his very own brain series on the new ultrahigh definition digital channel: Insight.Tv. In his spare time Jack likes to surf, read, roller-skate, run around Richmond Park and (believe it or not) carve stone on the banks of the River Thames.
Lliana and Dr Jack met in 2014 while presenting a psychology show for the BBC and the idea for their award winning podcast 'Geek Chic's Weird Science' was born. Together they brought it to Lliana's weekly show on Radio X (then Xfm) and introduced thousands of listeners to their weird and wonderful world of science.

Review

From the sharks who like AC/DC to the cockroaches steered by remote control, Lliana and Dr Jack's book is a fun romp through some of the curiouser corners of research - taking in some surprisingly cutting edge science along the way―Tom Whipple, Science Editor, The Times

This book is a wonderful wander down the more bizarre, surprising and sometimes shocking corridors of scientific research. My favourite must be the study which demonstrates that pre-trained goldfish can tell the difference between Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" and Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring", I have academic colleagues who can't do that―Brian Cox

I met the Emerald Cockroach Wasp and the Grasshopper Hairworm and 28 days later I was still enjoying this fabulous book . . . More science packed into one book than grains of sand on an area the size of Wales - brilliant!―Chris Packham --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
