Publisher's Summary

Black holes. DNA. The Large Hadron Collider. Ever had that sneaking feeling that you are missing out on some truly spectacular science? You do? Well fear not, for help is at hand.
Ben Miller was working on his Physics PhD at Cambridge when he accidentally became a comedian. But first love runs deep, and he has returned to his roots, to share with you all his favourite bits of science. This is the stuff that you really need to know, not only because it matters, but because it will quite simply amaze and delight you.
"Let me show you another, perhaps less familiar side of Science; her beauty, her seductiveness and her passion. And let's do it quickly, while Maths isn't looking." (Ben Miller)

Any additional comments?

Quick and entertaining, especially for a science book. Only hits a few subjects & with no new revelations, but Ben Miller's wit (whom I'm a fan of from his British comedy work) definitely makes it a worthwhile and enjoyable read.

Similar to "A Short History of Nearly Everything"

If you enjoyed "A Short History of Nearly Everything", you'll love "It's Not Rocket Science"! The author is also a comedian so the facts he presents are often accompanied with a laugh. He has some very interesting tid-bits of information that are thrilling to both scientists and non scientists alike. In my opinion, a British accent makes any audiobook more enjoyable and Ben Miller has a fantastic voice. Overall and excellent book and well worth the time and money! 5 stars
