Pressestimmen"'A travelogue of science, with a witty, engaging, and well-informed guide who loves his patch and is desperate to share its delights with us'" -- Peter Atkins The Times "'A thoroughly enjoyable, as well as educational, experience. Nobody who reads it will ever look at the world around them in the same way again'" -- William Hartston Daily Express "'Brims with strange and amazing facts...destined to become a modern classic of science writing'" -- Ed Regis New York Times Book Review "'It deserves to sell as many copies as there are protons in the full stop that ends this review (at least 500,000,000,000).'" -- Craig Brown Mail on Sunday "'The very book I have been looking for most of my life...Trunkloads of information, amazing stories and extraordinary personalities'" -- Christopher Matthew Daily Mail
