Keep your hands off my copy!!,
This review is from: The Geek Atlas: 128 Places Where Science and Technology Come Alive (Paperback)
Just like the previous reviewer I wish I'd bought two copies of this superb book. My wife and I keep grabbing our copy and every time we find something fascinating to dip into. OK it's a travel book but it's equally a neat source, in digestible chunks, of all sorts of fascinating science, technology and maths information.
The book contains "sidebars" of background material developing in some depth a scientific fact/piece of information with relevance to the recommended location.
I'd recommend this book not only to "geeks" but to anyone like me with even a passing interest in the world of science and technology. You don't even need to be a dedicated traveller to get satisfaction from The Geek Atlas - it's a GREAT read as a book - not just a travel book. Highly recommended.
