Ben Miller's It's Not Rocket Science is very much from the knowledge end of the scientific spectrum.

Ben Miller's It's Not Rocket Science is very much from the knowledge end of the scientific spectrum. Miller, like O Briain, Tim Minchin, Chris Addison and principal investigator Robin Ince, is part of the phalanx of comedians for whom science is a thing of wonder, and a source of material.

Ben Miller: He actually makes the Large Hadron Collider comprehensible It aims to inspire an interest in the reader as Miller himself was inspired by the deputy head of his village school.

Ben Miller: He actually makes the Large Hadron Collider comprehensible. Before he dropped out to become a full-time comedian, Ben Miller (of Armstrong and Miller fame) was studying for a quantum physics PHD at Cambridge. His passion for the subject and his gift for comedy shine through in this book, which he describes as ‘a mix tape of science greats’, a layman’s guide to the most exciting bits of science

Covers the most interesting bits of science with a sense of humor. Everything from atom smashers to how to bake a cake like a real scientist, to watching out for asteroids. Ben Miller really likes science and it comes through in his writing. (Amazing how fun science is when you don't have to study for a test on Monday.)

Very fun read and solid science, just 2 notes: His estimates on the Drake equation tell us Mars 100% has had life. Also I understand stars twinkle from our atmosphere, rather than interstellar medium. But the Drake equation estimate was enlightening, giving 7 alien civilizations in our galaxy waiting for a call, though an estimate of none in our galaxy is more reasonable to me.
JUST DO IT
This is a brilliantly written science book for both scientists and non-scientists alike. Ben Miller does an excellent look at major science areas and topics relevant to today's society and science community alike. I highly recommend this book to everyone, the only thing I would recommend even more is the Audio book, with Ben's intended tone and unique flavor of comedy added it makes for a wonderful listen.

Fairly engaging so far, but chatty in a sort of 'assuming reader-anxiety'-way. Stops just shy of arrogance, so still readable, but the author spends more time telling the reader that things are mind-blowing, when he could maybe just blow our minds by really getting into what he's been talking around. Maybe he'll get there. If he does, I'll come back and say so. I promise.

I thoroughly liked this book. Even though I have read many science books, this has been one of the most fun as well as nicely informative about a number if topics close to my heart including climate change and evolution.

This author is the best for science fun! He was wonderful to watch as the actor/comedian and to learn about his physics studies was a real bonus! I haven't finished this yet, but look forward to reading every day!

A great concept book to help explain some of the more advance topics of physics. It can be a little hard to follow if you only read a few sections at a time, it is best to read the whole chapter so all the info is fresh in your mind. Ben Miller does a great job making it fun and keeps your interests.
There are a few authors who can make even complicated subjects easy and obscure subjects fun, and Ben Miller is one of them. I understand he's working on a book about space science and exploration now. I want it.
