What a Wonderful World
Author of The Sunday Times Science Book of the Year 2017
In “What a Wonderful World”, Marcus Chown, physicist, broadcaster and consultant for New Scientist, applies his deep understanding of complex things to simple questions about the workings of our everyday lives. Lucid, witty and hugely entertaining, the book explains the essence of our existence, stopping along the way to answer questions such as why do we breathe? How does the brain work? Does time really exist? And how did an advanced breed of monkey like us get to dominate the Earth?
