Question Everything by New ScientistFrom $16.5
The dazzling new collection of scientific questions and answers from New Scientist magazine. All science begins with questions: How does that happen? What am I seeing here? Why do these birds do that? When will we have proof for this? And often the simplest questions can lead to amazing insights into our world, our universe and ourselves.Here are over 100 intriguing questions and answers from all the sciences, including medicine, astronomy and psychology as well as physics, chemistry and biology - plus one unanswered question for readers of the book to tackle! As you would expect from New Scientist, this is top- flight science at its most accessible, unpredictable and entertaining.Some of the answers may seem obvious when one reads them (of course - why didn't I think of that?); others are more surprising (wow, isn't nature amazing!); some are downright startling (can there really be that much flora in our guts?); and others are still controversial (yes, scientists do get into furious arguments sometimes...). About the Author Avidly read for over fifty years, New Scientist is the bestselling and fastest growing science magazine in the world. Question Everything is compiled and edited by Mick O'Hare, production editor of New Scientist, who is frequently interviewed on TV and radio.

Paleofantasy by Marlene ZukFrom $18.35
Theories about how our ancestors lived - and why we should emulate them - are often based on pseudoscience and speculation rather than actual research. Taking us to the cutting edge of biology, Marlene Zuk explains that evolution can work faster than was previously realised, meaning that we are not biologically the same as our caveman ancestors. Zuk shows how our visions of an ideal evolutionary past in which we ate, lived and reproduced as we were "meant to" can lead us astray and distract us from more interesting considerations of how we differ from our forebears. Along the way, she debunks the caveman diet, discusses whether we're really designed to run barefoot and considers modern-day courtship and child-rearing practices in the context of how our ancestors lived. About the Author Marlene Zuk is a professor of biology at the University of California - Riverside and is the author of Sex on Six Legs.
