Daunt Books - Science writers

Science writers Sam Kean and Helen Czerski discuss the surprising and fascinating science of everyday life.

In Caesar's Last Breath, Sam Kean takes us on a journey through the periodic table, around the globe, and across time to tell the story of the air we breathe, which, it turns out, is also the story of earth and our existence in it.

Helen's 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?
