About the Author

Dr Michael Brooks is an author, journalist, and consultant for New Scientist. His biggest accomplishment to date is not the PhD in Quantum Physics - it's writing Rick's favourite popular science book, 13 Things That Don't Make Sense. Together they were the authors of Science(ish): The Peculiar Science Behind the Movies.

Reviews

A wonderful book... Delightfully varied... As with all the best science writing, this book doesn't just give answers, it also asks interesting questions. * Daily Mail *
A witty and informative look at how Hollywood kills us off. As a film buff and scientist I love this book. * Maggie Aderin-Pocock, space scientist and presenter of The Sky at Night *
Great fun and makes you feel a hundred times cleverer. * Charlie Higson, actor, comedian, and bestselling author *
Explores everything from the ins and outs of black holes (Interstellar) to artificial intelligence (Ex Machina)... Edwards and Brooks don't take themselves too seriously and their cartoon heads pop up throughout deconstructing the films wittily while explaining the underlying science simply. * Sunday Times on Science(ish) *
Deeply funny, academically accomplished, and unfalteringly engaging. Entertaining as it may be, it's difficult to escape the fact that Edwards and Brooks have just made the world of popular science much harder work for the rest of us. * Ben Miller - comedian and author of It's Not Rocket Science on Science(ish) *
Chirpy [and] bantering. * Strong Words *
