Just like you, Dr Michael Brooks and Rick Edwards have watched movies and been sucked into those fictional worlds. Unlike you, they've written an amusing book exploring and unpicking these much-loved stories, revealing the science within.
Based on their award-winning podcast, this popular (hopefully) science (definitely) book dedicates each chapter to an iconic movie, and seeks to answer the key questions arising from it. From Jurassic Park (Could we ever bring back extinct species?) to The Matrix (Is it possible we're living in a computer simulation?), this is a wild ride through modern astrophysics, biology, neuroscience, behavioural science, technology, and lots of other -ologies. Highly designed throughout and illustrated throughout, this hilarious, informative book is an essential gift for your inner geek (or least one you know).
