About the book:

Perfect for "Did you know . . .?" barroom conversations, this handy volume--intended more as a reference book for browsing than a sequential narrative--includes a chapter on the top 10 problems in modern science and explains the outer frontiers of current biology and physics knowledge to the layman. String theory, neurobiology, chaos theory: all are touched on lightly and concisely as Trefil describes key concepts in a broad range of scientific enigmas. With its excellent bibliography, this book could provide the springboard for many further excursions in scientific literature.
