NAKED SCIENCE
« on: 14/09/2006 10:14:47 »


It's a collection of over 250 of some of the best, and some of the more amusing scientific discoveries from the last 2 years.

What it guarantees is perfect "pub ammo", or perhaps even "playground ammo" for younger readers - because it should suit anyone with a brain and a sense of humour from age 12 and up.

For more information, this page http://www.thenakedscientists.com/book/index.htm contains samples and a link to an online sales outlet, if you'd like to buy a copy. As an incentive, UK postage is FREE!

Thanks for your interest,

Chris

Dear Steven

that's great. Would you be good enough to review it for me? I'd really appreciate your thoughts.

I've read it, well most of it, and it's FANTASTIC.

It's the perfect pick up put down book. In fact I ahven't enjoyed a science book this much since A Level physics. Only joking!

My copy is actually going in my son's Christmas stocking, but don't tell him I read it first!

Nice work.

George.

Why George, How many children do you have?

Hey Chris for those of us Us citizens who don't use banking or credit cards, Is there an address we can send money orders to, that allows us to purchase the book! I want a copy but did not see that information when I clicked on the link! Could you let me know?
By the way, in editing my mistakes, I realized I had forgotten to tell you Good Luck and I hope it does well. If The Naked Scientists Site is any sign of the work you can produce then I say it should be a best seller!!!:DCongradulations!!

Mmm, that's tricky. You could drop an email to "borisa" at homechoice dot co dot uk and ask that question. Boris may know a simple solution.

That's so funny - everyone's saying that!

And I suppose the real bonus is that even if you hate it (which you won't) you can always wipe your ar$e on it, which is nice!

Well Justin I guess you'll just have to buy another copy for yourself now and donate the first one to your room mate for Christmas ;)

Text-wise, no. The Aussie version is a hardback, however. Very nice!
