    Science starts to get interesting when things don't make sense. Science's best-kept secret is that there are experimental results and reliable data that the most brilliant scientists can neither explain nor dismiss. If history is any precedent, we should look to today's inexplicable results to forecast the future of science. Michael Brooks heads to the scientific frontier to meet 13 modern-day anomalies and discover tomorrow's breakthroughs.

    "A compelling survey"
    Overall

    Michael Brooks has managed to capture the excitement and mystery (not to mention the irony and hilarity) of the undiscovered. Given the subject of his survey is the enterprise of science (which too often appears as an edifice of certainty), Brooks' accomplishment is not merely that much more compelling but especially timely and needed.

    For we live in a time of great uncertainty and churn in human perspectives, when so many in the endeavour of science too frequently aggregate in positions of orthodoxy, dogma and convention. It's so crucial for us to be afforded this survey of science pursuing the unveiling of truth, to see how frequently mainstream (fashionable) science, despite a methodology designed to level the playing field, too frequently makes a fool of itself; by hounding the scientists who muster the courage to let their curiosity consider 'unfashionable' hypotheses.

    I cannot recommend this book highly enough. It is not only for those whose passion for science, or voracious curiosity of the nature of the universe/creation knows no bounds. This book is especially for those who have come to feel an unease with science and technology or a loss of wonder in the universe.
