In this book, the author uses his wide experience as a medical scientist to examine the phenomenon of old age, which sooner or later is of deep significance for everyone. He presents an original theory of human ageing in terms of genetics. From this he goes on to discuss the genetic factors which, moderated by the environment, produce intelligence, temperament, and behaviour. In the final chapters he discusses the genetic inheritance of modern man and the difficulties it presents into day's complex civilisation. Such matters as aggression, love, power, good and evil are brought out of the meta... View more info

Climate change is the most serious issue of our generation. It will likely bring sea-level rise displacing millions, lead to the loss of thousands of species, reduce food production and create geopolitical tensions - all by the end of this century. The fact that human-caused climate change is happening is now beyond dispute in the scientific community, yet despite the awful consequences, many people are apathetic. Low-Carbon and Loving It is an ordinary person's, easy-to-read guide to climate change. The book is divided into two sections. The problem of climate change includes sections on the ...

C. P. Snow once remarked that not knowing the second law of thermodynamics is like never having read Shakespeare. Yet, while many people grasp the first law of energy, "Energy can neither be created nor destroyed," few recognize the second, "Entropy can only increase." What is entropy anyway, and why must it increase? Whether we want to know how a device as simple as a refrigerator works or understand the fate of the universe, we must start with the concepts of energy and entropy. In The Refrigerator and the Universe, Martin and Inge Goldstein explain the laws of thermodynamics... View more info

The moment of the beginning of time is one of science's Holy Grails, pursued by devotees and obsessives across the ages. Few were more committed than Bishop James Ussher who lost his sight in his 50 year quest, laboriously outlined in his 2000 Latin pages of Annals - a chronology of all known history - that is now famous only for one spectacularly inaccurate date: 4004BC, the creation of the world. Theology failed Ussher, just as it thwarted Theophilus of Antioch and many others before him. Geology was next to fail the test of time: the Comte de Buffon, working out the rate at which the earth ... View more info

Condition: Near Fine Condition


Light, like no other physical phenomenon, is linked in a wide variety of ways with the biological phenomenon of life. We can read this page because light is reflected from it, and carries the information to the retina; the oxygen we breathe was produced by photosynthesis; our sense of alertness relies on our biological clock, set using the cues of light and dark. Michael Gross explores the symbiotic relationship of light and life in this intriguing and entertaining book. Starting with astronomy and our relationship with the Sun and dependence on photosynthesis, he then turns to some of the str... View more info

As the 20th century draws to a close, the fundamental elements of matter and life - the particles of the atom and the decoding of the nucleus of the cell - have been discovered, and one of the great chapters of scientific discovery has drawn to a close. In many ways, however, this is but a preface to an even more far-reaching scientific revolution that will take place in the next century, as we make the transition from unravelling the secrets of nature to becoming the masters of nature. In this text, physicist Michio Kaku looks to this future and guides the reader through the science of the ne... View more info
