Product description

Review

"Powerful and important, The Geek Manifesto eloquently lays out a programme to make the UK a more rational and therefore prosperous and successful country. And it's not that hard to do! Base policy decisions on evidence, invest in our knowledge-based economy by supporting education and research, and above all promote reason above opinion. Everyone interested in importing the scientific method into public life should read this book, and then lobby their MP!" (Professor Brian Cox)

"The Geek Manifesto is the most compelling, engaging and entertaining account I’ve read of the relationship between science and politics .,, Geek or non-geek, this is a manifesto we should all feel able to endorse." (James Wilsdon Financial Times)

"[Mark Henderson's] writing is urgent and for today ...I would, if I could, force every politician in the land to read this book and act ." (Nick Cohen Observer)

"A rallying cry... it is impossible not to admire Henderson’s focused anger at the lack of science in policy making and his passion to change things." (Angela Saini New Scientist)

"The Geek Manifesto should be required reading for all those who question the value and importance of science." (Manjit Kumar Independent)

Book Description

A compelling and entertaining and very persuasive call to arms for scientists, engineers, skeptics, rationalists - all geeks, secret geeks and wannabe geeks everywhere...Shortlisted for the Political Book Awards Polemic of the Year 2012.
