About this book

In this fascinating book, historian of science Edward Tenner takes a fine-toothed comb to several realms of technological intervention and discovers a resolute pattern of `revenge effects, paradoxical, ironic consequences of the steps we take supposedly to improve our lives.' Of particular interest are the number of cases where supposed improvements to the environment have been anything but - where the particular problem has been made manifoldly worse by scientific intervention.
