The Curious Quantum: Fundamental Chemistry Explain&hellip by Lee Bulbrook
5.0 out of 5 stars Chemistry can be fun, 6 Aug 2013

An Appeal to Reason: A Cool Look at Global Warming by Nigel Lawson

I feel rather insulted by this book. I had no preconceptions about this topic so decided to research the best books which are consensual and sceptical about climate change.

Don't worry if you can't tell the pointy end of a dart from the flappy bit, once Mr Irwin has finished, you'll know all about your oches and tossers (really). In `Murder on the Darts Board' you can follow one man's folly, a roller coaster ride through (at least to him) an uncharted world. It's packed with humour and keen observations that keeps you turning the pages. Through his quest he not only manages to hit the odd 180, but also his own face! I chuckled throughout, and it left me at the end searching the loft for my old board which has lain untouched for 20 years. A cracking story, I just feel sorry for his poor girlfriend who had to live within it for a year!
