In which I express my deep disappointment that the science book I thought might clear up my general scientific confusion proved to be written rather confusingly.
Although that may all be down to taste. But I’m not at all clear on why the outfits of the scientists interviewed were given almost as much page space as the science they were talking about.
Okay, that’s not fair, but still – there were lots of words in this book, and most of them didn’t help me understand anything. There were a few that did, but it took too long to wade through all the padding to find them. Which I’m really disappointed by, because the author can write, and I was really excited by the concept. I thought I might come out of it with a good grasp on the basics of science.
Instead I was bored and upset because I hate DNF-ing. 🙁
How about you, lovely people? Have you been let down by a book you were excited to read? Or do you have any book suggestions for the scientifically challenged, like me? Let me know below!
