About the Book
Have you ever wondered why ice floats, how the GPS on your mobile phone works (and what it has to do with Einstein), or why woollen jumpers shrink in the wash?

Always entertaining and with no special prior scientific knowledge required, this is the perfect book for anyone curious about the science that surrounds us.
