“Bright, nerdy and funny! Of course I loved it.” Dara O Briain

Can we resurrect dinosaurs, Jurassic Park-style? Are we living in The Matrix‘s digital simulation? Do aliens with acid blood exist somewhere in the universe? Will we ever go back and visit 1955? And just why were the original Planet of the Ape movies so terrible?

In Science(ish), Rick Edwards and Dr Michael Brooks confront all the questions that your favourite movies provoke. Inspired by their award-winning podcast, this popular (hopefully) science (definitely) book dedicates each chapter to a different sci-fi classic, and wittily explores the fascinating issues that arise.

Covering movies from 28 Days Later to Ex Machina, this is a joyous ride through astrophysics, neuroscience, psychology, botany, artificial intelligence, evolution, and plenty more subjects you’ve always wanted to grasp. Now’s your chance: stylishly designed and illustrated throughout, Science(ish) is the perfect gift for every curious mind.
