It will bring you up to speed in the hot areas of modern science, from atomic theory and the Big Bang to health scares and global warming. Bypassing complexities that only the scientists need to know, this book presents easy to follow sketches and summaries that drive home today’s most widely discussed scientific facts and theories. This book presents nine robust chapters, beginning with science basics – the building blocks of the world around us. Next, it gives you a closer look at the observable Universe, with a summary of how the world came into existence and a description of our planet and its environment. Subsequent chapters cover the human organism, our health, and our genes. A final chapter looks into astonishing far out topics in physics and cosmology, including the theory of relativity, string theory, and quantum theory. Illustrated and explained throughout with clear, colorful, down to earth analogies, and filled with truly amazing facts, this book will make you wonder why science wasn’t explained like this when you were in school.

A highly entertaining, myth-busting read for anyone with even a passing interest in science. Hot on the heels of the fascinating compendium Everything You Know About London Is Wrong, this next book in the series, written by author Matt Brown in his trademark humourous style, debunks the scientific myths we all take for granted. Does nothing travel faster than the speed of light? Well, in certain circumstances, a winded tortoise can go faster. Are there actually seven colours in a rainbow? Think again. And our author merrily explains why our hair and nails don't keep growing after we die and why chemicals in our diet might not be the toxic threats we are led to believe. Covering everything from pseudoscience to phenomena of physics, scandals of space and scientific misquotes, Everything You Know About Science is Wrong shatters a range of illusions we have accepted unquestioningly since childhood and demystifies this most puzzling of subjects.
