Magic Universe : A Grand Tour of Modern Science Paperback
by Nigel Calder
This is a marvellously engaging tour covering the whole of modern science, from transgenic crops to quantum tangles.
Written by one of the most experienced and well-known names in science writing, it is also assuredly reliable science.
Although arranged for convenience and quick reference as a collection of topics in alphabetical order, it is very different from any conventional encyclopedia.
Each topic tells a story, making the book eminently browsable.
Packed with information, yet carrying its immense learning lightly, this is a book that would appeal to anyone with the slightest interest in how the world works.
