Bumbreath Botox and Bubbles and Other Fully Sick Science Moments: New Moments In Science #5, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki
1 Dr Karl Kruszelnicki Bumbreath Botox and Bubbles and Other Fully Sick Science Moments: New Moments In Science #5
HarperCollins 233553 Australia 2003 0732267153 / 9780732267155 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition Dr Karl gives us quirky factual details about nature, science and people in this, the latest in his excellent New Moments in Science series. In this fifth book Dr Karl rampages on, doing what he does best - writing about scientific discovery and endeavours from an expert point of view. His ability to popularise science and clarify scientific jargon is what gives this author bestselling status. And he doesn't just let us in on the facts behind the success stories; he sometimes lets us in on the disasters. Previously, Dr Karl has answered the most baffling questions of all: How do you get belly-button fluff? And why is it usually blue? Why does toast always land butter side down? And how did Mike the Headless Chicken survive for 18 months without a head? Another bestselling, block-busting, demystifying and fully sick New Moments in Science. 246 pages. Light tanning to page edges. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Science::Popular Science; Science & Technology; ISBN: 0732267153. ISBN/EAN: 9780732267155.

Pan Macmillan 232814 Australia 2015 1925480461 / 9781925480467 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition In Short Back & Science , Dr Karl combs through some of the greatest scientific conundrums of our age, such as what is killing half the bacteria on Earth every two days and why don't mole rats get cancer? Why would anyone pay $40 million for a cup of tea, and how did a toilet seat help to end the First World War? Are bananas really slippery, radioactive and loaded with potassium? What do clouds weigh? And why are there scientists running around naked in the Antarctic? Brushing aside any hype about coconuts and antioxidants, there is no one better to trim down to the facts than Australia's most trusted scientist, Dr Karl. 267 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Game of Knowns - Science is Coming, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki
3 Dr Karl Kruszelnicki Game of Knowns - Science is Coming
Pan Macmillan 229645 Australia 2013 First Edition 1742613349 / 9781742613345 Hardcover (Printed Boards) Near Fine Condition There are Known Knowns, Known Unknowns, and Unknown Unknowns. And then there is Dr Karl. The inimitable Dr Karl is back again with more scintillating science scenarios, techy tales and tasty morsels to sate even the most haemoglobin-thirsty of his army of Twitter followers. In Game of Knowns, he tells us why psychopaths make good kings, how smart phones dumb down our conversations, explains why the left side of your face is the most attractive, how the female worker bee gets a raw deal, and why we drink beer faster when it is served in a curved glass. He also gives us the low-down on comets, explains the magic of hoverboards, solemnly shares why dark matter matters, and spills the scientific basis of wealth distribution. 292 pages.

4 Dr Karl Kruszelnicki Please Explain
Angus & Robertson 227089 Australia 2007 0732285356 / 9780732285357 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition Adam Yazxhi Australia's favourite scientist's twenty-sixth book! 'What are the facts? Again and again and again - what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking ...avoid opinion ...facts are your single clue. Get the facts!' - Time Enough for Love, Robert Heinlein Does eating celery make you lighter? Do you have to be dying to have a near-death experience? Is a yawn a silent, natural scream for air; and if a little oxygen is good for you is more oxygen better? Can the humble spud kill? Did Galileo drop his balls from the Leaning Tower of Pisa? Did a NASA computer really prove a miracle in the Bible actually happened? Is there any substance harder than diamond, and do diamonds really last forever? And exactly how many Eskimo words for 'snow' are there? Wherever he goes, people always ask Dr Karl to explain stuff, and in this his 26th book (26 is the only number directly between a square and a cube), he explains more myths and curly questions. 243 pages. Item Type: TV Tie-in. Illustrator: Adam Yazxhi. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Science::Popular Science; Science & Technology; ISBN/EAN: 9780732285357.
