Great to pick up and put down, interesting if not querky. Essential reading for those who love science and understand it or for those who want something different to read whilst learning something

The articles on physics and cosmology were excellent and I would have liked more of the same. I was disappointed that about half of the book was given over to the index and credits.

I was quite disappointed by this issue from the New Scientist. I expect cutting edge from the magazine but instead got old news - most of which is available on w3, allbeit in slightly different form. Certainly , I learned some new things - and this made reading the book worth the time, however, as a whole, although each article was well enough presented, I would categorize it as a mediocre effort and put the blame on the editors not the individual authors.
Sorry guys!

George F. Hart, Professor emeritus, LSU.

As expected from New Scientist, it is intriguing, thought provoking and yet remains an interesting read for anyone interested in the off beat or quirky side of science

A very good ebook covering a range of topics that are not usually covered. Found the topics to be thought provoking and interesting.

It is a good book, with articles on diverse subjects all related to nothing.
It certainly did deepen my insights about the big bang theory.
I would recommend it, it is a perfect book to take with you on holyday.

Its a book that you read a bit then think a lot. Things that you have taken for granted deserve more thought .Other than that nothing more to say John
