This collection of essays by popular science writer Mike Bruton reflects his multiple involvements in science, art and technology
This collection of essays by popular science writer Mike Bruton reflects his multiple involvements in science, art and technology. He is equally at home sharing his knowledge on creativity in the sciences and the arts, funny episodes in the history of science, lessons from the dodo, the updated coelacanth story, evolution of the bicycle, Africa's Nobel Prize winners, or our greatest inventors and strangest creatures.' Science is so deep, fast-moving and complex today that it is important to have someone who can wade through the detail and showcase the most interesting bits for general readers. Although the book deals with some deep scientific issues, using examples drawn from the author's remarkable experiences, it is accessible to all readers as he retains a childlike curiosity throughout and is not ashamed to express his excitement at new discoveries and bizarre inventions.
