              Quantum physics and relativity, two of the most important advances in modern science, are normally presented as a series of technical discoveries in 20th century Europe.Yet this brief, easy-to-read volume shows how they were underpinned by centuries of observations about the natu...re of reality from the great philosophies and faiths of humanity, from China to India to the Middle East.At each stage, the people involved found themselves saying: 'That's impossible! That makes no sense. And yet...'

              Spinach On The Ceiling: The Multifaceted Life Of A Theoretical Chemist (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The autobiography of Martin Karplus, Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 2013, describes the journey from his childhood in Vienna, his escape to Switzerland in 1938 shortly after Hitler's entrance into Austria, his education in New England and California, and scientific career which took h...im to England, Illinois, Columbia, Strasbourg, and Harvard. The author's optimistic outlook and faith in himself made it possible for him to overcome difficulties in his research and to develop methods in several different fields of science that asked questions to teach him and others something not known before. Paralleling his efforts in science, Martin Karplus enjoyed a life-long interest in cooking, working at some of the best restaurants in France and Spain, and in photography, holding numerous exhibitions of his work around the world.

              The book is a non fiction-based piece of popular science which unravels the amazing adaptive physiological responses that our bodies undergo as we push it to the limits in extreme sports and natural environments. Each chapter captures the history, geography and physical challenge...s which our bodies face when we as a species have tried to conquer the great outdoors. From Mt Everest to the South Pole, from a journey to Mars to the bottom of the Mariana trench, the book makes the subject accessible to readers, with a basic knowledge of science, and also tries to bring in the author's own personal experiences and those of many legends from this sphere.For the reader (someone interested in science, particularly the life sciences or those who enjoy the outdoors and partake in extreme sports and outdoor activities), this is aimed to make physiology accessible and relatable, not as a piece of academic text.The reader will come away with a stronger understanding of human physiology (particularly at the extreme), how the body first deteriorates, then adapts and finally excels when faced with running a marathon, summiting Everest or going to Mars. Its cross functional nature, being a piece of non-fiction / popular science with personal anecdotes and history mixed in, will make for an interesting and memorable reading.
