About this product
- DescriptionTHE SINGLE HELIX is a miscellany of a hundred easy pieces about science. It brings to life a vast diversity of subjects, united under the banner of scientific truth - the universal solvent that brings clarity to almost all the mysteries of the world we live in. Scientists are trained to kw ever more about even less but here Steve Jones sets out deliberately to explore subjects in which he is emphatically t an expert (although his favourite snail, the single Helix of his title, does poke in a tentacle here and there). His insatiable curiosity and enthusiasm as he sheds light on unexpected corners of kwledge combine to produce science writing at its very best. From chaos in the heavens to the fight against creationism, from optical illusions in tartan to the mathematics of elections and what rules the sex lives of cats THE SINGLE HELIX is a scientist's look at sciences other than his own - and as a result its author has been forced to make the complicated simple eugh for even a biologist to understand.
- Author BiographyProfessor of Genetics at University College London, Steve Jones gave the Reith Lectures in 1991 and presented a TV series on human genetics and evolution. A columnist for the DAILY TELEGRAPH, he frequently appears on radio and TV.
