Furry Logic looks in detail at the animals that use cool physics in weird and intriguing ways as part of their daily battle to survive. It details the role of physics in the lives of a number of animals, as uncovered by scientists researching the field of biomechanics. The book is divided into seven chapters, each representing a separate arm of physics. Each chapter examines the animals' key features before describing the ways they use physics, how this was discovered, and what remains to be found out. We learn: · how pistol shrimps can generate a force strong enough to destroy aquarium glass using their claws · how whales hear using fat · how cats and dogs lap up milk thanks to the laws of surface tension · why reindeer use ultraviolet light for foraging · how a male peacock's train generates infrasound' to attract a mate · how ants navigate thanks to magnetic fields · how mosquitoes survive collisions with raindrops. Furry Logic makes the incredible interdisciplinary world of animal biomechanics accessible to all, in an enthralling and entertaining read.

“A flawless compendium of flaws.” —Alice Roberts, PhD, anatomist, writer, and presenter of The Incredible Human Journey The antidote to fuzzy thinking, with furry animals! Have you read (or stumbled into) one too many irrational online debates? Ali Almossawi certainly had, so he wrote An Illustrated Book of Bad Arguments! This handy guide is here to bring the internet age a much-needed dose of old-school logic (really old-school, a la Aristotle). Here are cogent explanations of the straw man fallacy, the slippery slope argument, the ad hominem attack, and other common attempts at reasoning that actually fall short—plus a beautifully drawn menagerie of animals who (adorably) commit every logical faux pas. Rabbit thinks a strange light in the sky must be a UFO because no one can prove otherwise (the appeal to ignorance). And Lion doesn’t believe that gas emissions harm the planet because, if that were true, he wouldn’t like the result (the argument from consequences). Once you learn to recognize these abuses of reason, they start to crop up everywhere from congressional debate to YouTube comments—which makes this geek-chic book a must for anyone in the habit of holding opinions.

Just as Freakonomics brought economics to life, so Storm in a Teacup brings physics into our daily lives and makes it fascinating. What is it that helps both scorpions and cyclists to survive? What do raw eggs and gyroscopes have in common? And why does it matter? In an age of string theory, fluid dynamics and biophysics, it can seem as if the science of our world is only for specialists and academics. Not so, insists Helen Czerski – and in this sparkling new book she explores the patterns and connections that illustrate the grandest theories in the smallest everyday objects and experiences. Linking what makes popcorn pop to Antarctic winds, coffee stains to blood tests or ketchup bottles to aliens in space, every thread you pull in the fabric of everyday life shows you something new about the intricate patterns of our world. Read Storm in a Teacup and you will see and understand the world as you never did before.
