Product Description


This humorous, insightful, and sometimes amazing collection of writings has been brought together by the author of Scientific American's hugely popular "Anti Gravity" column - Steve Mirsky. In "Anti Gravity", Mirsky blends his sharp wit and wide-ranging interests to apply scientific viewpoint to popular culture - with often hilarious results. Learn how the TV series CSI has influenced huge numbers of college courses, marvel at the absurdities frequently found in "creation science", and laugh at the inanities of politicians trying to address scientific issues on morning television. This is a must-have volume for anyone that likes to take life just that little bit less seriously.
