Contributions from neuroscientists, climate commentators, psychologists, and science journalists share the billing with pieces from comedians, novelists, and poets in this collection of the best science writing in Australia. Rather than dry or abstract scientific theory, these essays address relevant, engaging, even entertaining topics such as Could the dodo make a comeback? What does science have to say about the sex in Fifty Shades of Grey? Is giving up meat really the greenest option? Do birds make art? and Can a psychologist interpret farts? With a foreword by comedian, musician, and self-confessed science nerd Tim Minchin, this provocative collection is brimming with intrigue, curiosity, and controversy.
