by Dk

  • (0)

Bored of biology? Crushed by chemistry? Perplexed by physics? DOES SCIENCE REALLY MATTER ANYWAY? Oh, only for... JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING! From how to stop a virus to defy gravity, and from how to predict the future to how to see the past, this book shows you where science started, why it matters now, and the jaw-dropping places it may lead us to in the future. It will change the way you think about science FOREVER! Beautiful hand-drawn illustrations show you how history's most ingenious and daring scientists solved mysteries that had puzzled the ancient world for millennia, triggering an age of discovery that gave us telescopes, flying machines, steam engines, antibiotics, electricity, radio, space travel, and computers. Discover the amazing men and women who challenged conventional thinking and put their lives at risk to learn about everything, from planetary orbits and gold to germs, and from gunpowder to radioactivity. What's the Point of Science? explains in super-simple terms how science really works and why it changed the world. It's packed with surprising facts, tales of ingenuity and endeavour, and beautiful, unique illustrations. This book is about how scientists changed the world, one breakthrough at a time, and it is guaranteed to inspire, surprise, amuse, and entertain everybody who picks it up.
