Media reviews
I've done an extensive review mailing for the Mini Science Book, and Peter Tallack appeared on the Fi Glover Programme in the 'Ask the Expert' slot (BBC Radio 5 Live on 12 May). He was also on the TODAY PROGRAMME (BBC Radio 4) on 4 June. THE SCIENCE BOOK is no. 10 in the TIMES Play Hardback Greatest Gains/New Entries chart for the week ending 17 May, which is great news. PROSPECT did a give-away in their September issue, for the winner of the crossword puzzle. Reviews expected so far include TIME OUT 'Perfect for dipping in to, thebook also illustrates the way in which science works - each new discovery building on the work of the past, with the odd genius sparking a spectacular revolution in thinking.'Geordie Torr, GEOGRAPHICAL 'this book comes highly recommended to anyone who...wants a concise overview of the whole of science.'Richard Wentk, FOCUS 'truly accessible and lavishly illustrated...A fabulous overview, capturing a world of fascination.'Sky Text (on-screen text service which runs on all Sky TV channels - audience 8million).
