Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Natalie Angier takes a joyride through the major scientific disciplines—physics, chemistry, biology, geology, and astronomy. Her approach is smart, funny, and sure to inspire a new appreciation of science.

Drawing on conversations with hundreds of the world's top scientists and her own work as an award-winning science writer, Natalie Angier does the impossible: She makes science fascinating and seriously fun, even for those of us who, in Angier's words, "still can't tell the difference between a proton, a photon, and a moron."
