Never Mind the B#ll*cks, Here's the Science

€25

Only 1 left!

2020 has brought science to the fore and where once we were beholden to popstars and footballers, it seems immunologists and virologists are the pin-ups of our time. Stepping into the fray is Professor Luke O'Neill from Trinity College who uses our heightened awareness and appetite for science as a chance to grapple with and posit viewpoints on some of the big questions of our time. O'Neill's eager and engaging tone makes this an ideal introduction for those curious about the big questions and in search of enjoyable explanations.

Some of these include why others scare you, why drugs should be legal, why you believe in diets, why you are wrecking the planet and what have you got to look forward to? Professor O'Neill is lead singer with a band called The Metabolix so this nod to The Sex Pistols is most apt.
