4.0 out of 5 stars Fun and Informative, 26 Sep 2013
By 
This review is from: Farmer Buckley's Exploding Trousers: And other odd events on the way to scientific discovery (Paperback)
An interesting and informative book about different scientific discoveries and how they came about. Very easy to read in small chunks as each discovery covers no more than about 4 pages. However, it didn't have the same type of charm and enjoyment for me as the New Scientist Question books such as Will We Ever Speak Dolphin?: and 130 other science questions answered (New Scientist) and I cannot really put my finger on why. I think it is probably because it is stating why has happened already and doesn't have the same kind of humour because it doesn't contain personal ideas and opinions. Still a very worthy addition to the New Scientist collection.
