Is the Great Wall of China visible from the Moon? Are we descended from Neanderthals? Guess again—because what you think is true about science might not be right!
There are some scientific “truths” we take for granted—but what if they’re wrong? For example, can anything travel faster than the speed of light? Strange as it seems, in certain circumstances, a winded tortoise might! Are there actually seven colors in a rainbow? Try again. Matt Brown merrily gives us the real story, explaining why our hair and nails don't keep growing after we die and why chemicals in our diet might not be the toxic threats we imagine. Along with an A–Z of pseudoscience, he brings us to the edge of physics, expounds on curious chemistry, and discusses space scandals, scientific misquotes, and body matters. Everything You Know About Science Is Wrong shatters a range of illusions we have accepted unquestioningly since childhood and demystifies this most puzzling of subjects.
