Sex, Drugs & Rock n Roll : The Science of Hedonism and the Hedonism of Science, Paperback / softback Book

Sex, Drugs & Rock n Roll : The Science of Hedonism and the Hedonism of Science Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

How can wordless collections of sounds send shivers down our spines and tickle ancient parts of our brains we share with reptiles?

How did a chemist's quest to create a drug to ease the pain of childbirth result in the creation of LSD?

Why do goats partake in oral sex, and how can a horse (or even a table) make us weak in the knees? And how on earth could the revered 'father of anatomy' not know where the clitoris was? From tortoiseshell condoms to superstar athletes on hallucinogens, these burning questions are explored and dissected, mixed with insights from some of the world's bravest, cleverest and downright weirdest scientist experimenting on the edge - and themselves.

It's a sharp shocker, an eye opener, asking the big questions about what it means to be human, about consciousness and happiness.

It'll pull you in and gross out. Exuberantly curious and shamelessly exuberant, Guerilla Science's Zoe Cormier reinvents popular science for a new generation by breaking all the rules.

Let's rock.
