About this book

This new selection of essays from the Royal Institution offers fascinating and authoritative accounts of current thinking in many areas of science and technology. The subjects are as wide-ranging as ever, from Simon Conway Morris discussing the fossils of the Burgess Shale, to Robert Matthews' highly entertaining scientific analysis of Murphy's Law, to essays on neurodegenerative diseases or 'brain killers', such as Alzheimer's disease and schizophrenia.
