Review:

Fascinating ... Brooks reawakens us to the astonishing fact of our mere existence, the strangeness of the world around us, and the astonishing amount that science has yet to discover (Christopher Hart Sunday Times)

Outstanding non-fiction reading (Esquire 2011-01-01)

Impressively knowledgeable, articulate (Christopher Hirst Independent 2010-02-19)

An admirably clear and clever writer (Evening Standard 2010-02-11)

Proof that science gets interesting when things get weird (Weekend Australian 2010-06-19)

Book Description:

'Brooks is an exemplary science writer ... This is the sort of science book one always hopes for. Learned, but easy to read. Packed with detail, but clear. Reading it will make you feel clever' William Leith, Daily Telegraph
