Product description

Review

This book is a wonderful wander down the more bizarre, surprising and sometimes shocking corridors of scientific research. My favourite must be the study which demonstrates that pre-trained goldfish can tell the difference between Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" and Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring", I have academic colleagues who can't do that (Brian Cox)

I met the Emerald Cockroach Wasp and the Grasshopper Hairworm and 28 days later I was still enjoying this fabulous book . . . More science packed into one book than grains of sand on an area the size of Wales - brilliant! (Chris Packham)

From the sharks who like AC/DC to the cockroaches steered by remote control, Lliana and Dr Jack's book is a fun romp through some of the curiouser corners of research - taking in some surprisingly cutting edge science along the way (Tom Whipple, Science Editor, The Times)

Book Description

From the presenters of popular podcast Geek Chic's Weird Science comes a book with the answers to all the scientific questions you never knew you should have asked.
