Len Fisher is a finalist for the prestigious Global Challenges New Shape prize.
Fun, quirky popular science from the winner of an IgNobel Prize for achievements that cannot or should not be reproduced.
Science is all around us. In this brilliant, entertaining book, Len Fisher provides scientific answers to familiar questions such as how to boil the perfect egg, how to catch a ball, the physics of sex, and why some vegetables absorb more gravy than others.
In doing so, he reveals the world of the scientist - how they think, what they do, and how they go about doing it - proving that even the most commonplace activities can be used as a key to understanding the laws of nature and that experimental science can be fun!
