About this book

How to clone a sheep. How to build a brain. How to boil a planet. How to save the world. From the microscopic to the cosmic, this book takes you on a glorious tour of the known universe and beyond, encompassing alien worlds, bizarre life forms, quantum weirdness, parallel dimensions and dissected brains along the way.

Jha's clear writing style organises these big ideas in a way that makes them a pleasure to revisit, and an eye-opener if you're discovering them for the first time
