Product description


As Highfield reminds us, "wizard" actually means wise man - and wizardry and science were closely related fields before Newton. "The Science of Harry Potter" aims to shed light not only on Harry Potter's magical realm, but also on the magic that is taking place in labs and science classrooms in our own "muggle" world.

About the Author

Dr Roger Highfield is the Science Editor of the Daily Telegraph, having joined the paper in 1986. He has won four Glaxo science writing awards, and his books have been translated into more than a dozen languages.
