Product description

Review

Fascinating and hilarious. What a wonderful book. Rick and Michael take you on a whirlwind guide around the science you don't know and the movies that you do. You will feel cleverer after reading this. - Richard Osman, co-host of Pointless

If you are a geek, a film buff, curious or simply want to know whether you still get BO in space, this is the book you have got to have. - Kate Humble BBC TV presenter and author of Humble by Nature

Deeply funny, academically accomplished, and unfalteringly engaging. Entertaining as it may be, it's difficult to escape the fact that Edwards and Brooks have just made the world of popular science much harder work for the rest of us. - Ben Miller - comedian and author of It s Not Rocket Science

Informative and captivating... Cult podcasters Michael Brooks and Rick Edwards lead a jolly romp through the borderlands of research, sci-fi and movies. - Roger Highfield Director of External affairs at the Science Museum and former editor of the New Scientist

A terrific, engaging read that brings to life some of the fascinating science that lies behind the movies. - Johnjoe McFadden, Professor of Genetics, University of Surrey

As a series, it works beautifully...delivered with both enthusiasm and a reassuring dose of scepticism.

--The Financial Times on the Science(ish) podcast
