Science and Sensibility, 1 April 2003
Being both a Discworld fan and interested in science, this book seemed like a natural choice. At first I feared it would be like one of those books with titles as "The science of Startrek" and such but this was fortunately not the case.
Instead, this is a popular science book that uses Terry's wit and jokes in the discworld to illustrate how science works in our round world. Being a student in biology I can say I enjoyed the biology parts as well as the other science topics.
Explaining science in easy to understand terms and still being correct is harder then you can imagine. These writers not only managed this, but also produced a gripping, funny and thought provoking piece of litterature that will stay with you for the rest of your life (whether you like it or not!)
