Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"Brooks details research being conducted on the extreme frontiers of science...in this absorbing piece of reportage...scintillating... the edgy edge of scientific investigation presented with verve."  —Kirkus

 

"Brooks highlights numerous areas of research that give pause to many scientists and throw lay readers into confusion in this challenging and mind-bending work. This confusion follows in no part from Brooks's skills as a writer and explicator of science, but from topics that are difficult to face, whether it be the philosophical morass of human/animal tissue combinations called "chimera" or the startling finding that time as we experience it may well be an illusion. Brooks handily works his way through these thorny problems, highlighting current research and researchers along the way." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Praise for Free Radicals

 

“An exuberant tour through the world of scientists behaving badly.” —The New York Times 

 

“Fascinating . . . Free Radicals reminds readers that scientific advances sometimes require creativity and vision.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer 

Présentation de l'éditeur

The atom. The Big Bang. DNA. Natural selection. All ideas that have revolutionised science - and that were dismissed out of hand when they first appeared. The surprises haven't stopped: here, Michael Brooks, bestselling author of 13 Things that Don't Make Sense, investigates the new wave of unexpected insights that are shaping the future of scientific discovery.





Through eleven radical new insights, Brooks takes us to the extreme frontiers of what we understand about the world. He journeys from the observations that might rewrite our history of the universe, through the novel biology behind our will to live, and on to the physiological root of consciousness. Along the way, he examines how the underrepresentation of women in clinical trials means that many of the drugs we use are less effective on women than men and more likely to have adverse effects, explores how merging humans with other species might provide a solution to the shortage of organ donors, and finds out if there is such a thing as the will to live.





When we think about science, we often think of iron-clad facts. But today more than ever, our unshakeable truths have been shaken apart. As Michael Brooks reveals, the best science is about open-mindedness, imagination and a love of mind-boggling adventures at the edge of uncertainty.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This Book Will Make You Question What You Thought You Knew 5 mars 2015
Par Frederick S. Goethel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
In the beginning of the book, the author describes how science works. He describes being on a beach with the normal, everyday scientists working on the lower part of the beach, but still well above the water line doing yeoman's work, or crossing the t's and doting the i's. Further down the beach, at the water's edge are people working on new ideas that aren't radical, but that will still have a major impact on science and finally there are the scientists that are way out in the water. They are the ones that are working on science that is so far out that it will create a paradigm shift in how we think of things. This book is about 11 of those paradigm shifting theories and what they mean.

I won't describe them here…in truth, I probably couldn't properly, even if I wanted to, but they were all mind altering in their implications. This is science on the cutting edge and will most likely expose the reader to things they had never thought about, let alone thought were possible. In addition, this science is far from settled. Scientists are still arguing about much of it, which is how science is supposed to work.

It was a very interesting book and one which I will re-read several times. The material is so foreign to what I know, or thought I knew, that I am sure I missed some of the information as I was reading. Although the author is himself a scientist, he presents the information in an easy to read and understand format. I would recommend this to anyone, but in particular to people who are interested in science and where science is headed in the future.

Interesting but these weren't "Discoveries Taking Science by Surprise." Limited scope mainly genetics.

Excellent discussion of cutting edge scientific inquiry in ways non-scientists can understand. Once you've read this you'll never think about the Universe and your own existence the same way again. Loved this book!

Michael Brooks has written what I think should be mandatory reading for every high school science student with this book. It will take you on a thought provoking, insightful, inspiring, and sometimes really weird journey of modern frontiers in a wide range of sciences.

This book is a challenge to read,but very exciting at the same time. It's to be read twice. Keep learning.
