    Overall
    "Modern-day physics and sociology made fun."

    I actually downloaded this from "Audible" not really knowing what to expect. What a wonderful surprise awaited my ears and mind...
    The subject of the book is looking at science in our modern-day world and how to use it to our advantage. Topics include how to tell the time using satelite dishes, using slugs as an excellent way to get rid of mould in the bathroom, how to ensure you get the best seats on the London underground and of course, how to predict the weather using a cup of coffee. Cole not only explains how to do a multitude of things to make life less boring, but also explains, in layman's terms, why the science works.
    Cole has written the book with such observational wit and asides that I found myself not only smiling, but actually laughing as I listened.
    Anyone interested in their world around them will find this book not only informative, but entertaining too.
    Highly recommended.
