Guinness World Records: Science & Stuff by GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS
Pan Macmillan Australia (2018) RRP $ 34.10 Hardcover
PACKED WITH BIG photos and capsule texts, this book jumps around and jabbers like a hyperactive child – and is perfect for every young geek.
Propelled by the same relentless humour and energy of the Guinness team’s popular
Officially Amazing television series, the topics range far and wide, from extreme sports to extremophiles, robots to rollercoasters, mole rats to mutant vegetables.
Along the way it raises wonderful topics for curious minds, such as what happens when you burp in space and how to start a dinosaur poo collection. There is also a collection of DIY experiments guaranteed to wreck the kitchen.
The collection is introduced by Robin Ince, a comedian who is Brian Cox’s co-host on the popular BBC radio show The Infinite Monkey Cage.
