Mr Tompkins is an ordinary middle-aged man who works in a bank but whose lively interest in science apparently occupies all his spare time, waking and dreaming. Though often nightmarish, his dreams somehow fit the facts he has read about in boks and magazines in popular science, thus helping him to grasp the difficult concepts through his own experiences.
