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)

    " A lot of it went over my head but I took away a greater understanding of some aspects of science. Ben Millers enthusiastic style and light of touch makes it a must read (or in my case listen as I had the audio book) "

    " I've always been rubbish at Science, however this was easy to understand and taught me lots in an entertaining way. "

    " I was particularly interested on a basic description of the LHC, and this was spot on. Ben Miller manages to explain things in a simple, understandable way without making the reader feel like a complete dolt. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Judge | 2/26/2013

    " Very educational for a layperson. As I'm not scientifically/mathematically minded, I presume his explanation of the scientific concepts is broad to say the least. I do feel like I know a lot more than when I started though! "

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 12/9/2012

    " It's written by Ben Miller. It's about science. It is, as you'd expect, written in a light-hearted fashion, being both entertaining and informative. It also contains an entire (quite unexpected) chapter about cake. What's not to like? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Martin | 9/19/2012

    " "It's Not Rocket Science" by Ben Miller is an excellent read. The author brings big ideas in science from the time of Newton to present-day within the grasp of every-day readers. "

About the Author

Ben Miller, a trained quantum physicist, is an actor and comedian, perhaps best known for his role as the sidekick in Johnny English. He is also the bestselling author of It’s Not Rocket Science, and host of the TV show of the same name. He has hosted numerous other TV and radio documentaries on subjects as varied as temperature and the history of particle physics. He is slowly coming to terms with the idea that he may never be an astronaut.
