    Why do we breathe? What is money? How does the brain work? Why did life invent sex? Does time really exist? How does capitalism work - or not, as the case may be? Where do mountains come from? How do computers work? How did humans get to dominate the Earth? Why is there something rather than nothing?

But, almost a century after their advent, most people haven’t the slightest clue what either is about. Get set for the most entertaining science book of the year.
