The Importance of Being Interested : Adventures in Scientific Curiosity, Hardback Book

The Importance of Being Interested : Adventures in Scientific Curiosity Hardback

Hardback

Description

'A delightful and scintillating hymn to science.' Carlo RovelliComedian Robin Ince quickly abandoned science at school, bored by a fog of dull lessons and intimidated by the barrage of equations.

But, twenty years later, he fell in love and he now presents one of the world's most popular science podcasts.

Every year he meets hundreds of the world's greatest thinkers. In this erudite and witty book, Robin reveals why scientific wonder isn't just for the professionals.

Filled with interviews featuring astronauts, comedians, teachers, quantum physicists, neuroscientists and more - as well as charting Robin's own journey with science - The Importance of Being Interested explores why many wrongly think of the discipline as distant and difficult.

From the glorious appeal of the stars above to why scientific curiosity can encourage much needed intellectual humility, this optimistic and profound book will leave you filled with a thirst for intellectual adventure.
