The Little Book of Unscientific Propositions, Theories and Things
Publisher:New Holland Publishers
Following on from The Little Book of Scientific Principles, Theories and Things and The Little Book of Maths Theorems, Theories and Things, Surendra Verma now takes a look at all things unscientific: simple, witty and entertaining introductions to 100 intriguing but improbable ideas from the borderlands of science. Is the Bermuda Triangle a genuine concern to ships' crews? Can evolution explain psychology? Will we ever have teleportation to instantly travel from Point A to B? Will the world end in 2012? And what of all those aliens, UFOs and crop circles? Verma looks at all of these questions and more, and shows how, while science may not have all of the answers, neither does The X-Files. Entertaining, sceptical with just a touch of sarcasm, this book is a refreshing middle ground between conspiracy theories and straight-down-the-line science.
