From gravity to black holes, special relativity to global warming, this authoritative and entertaining book from bestselling author Marcus Chown breaks down complex science into manageable chunks, explaining the one thing you really need to know to get to grips with the subject.

In a world in which most people are time poor, telling them the one thing they need to know to understand a topic and showing how everything else follows as a logical consequence is a novel and fun way to communicate a lot of deep stuff in a compact and digestible form. Divided into twenty-one short chapters, this will be a fascinating look at the one thing you need to know to understand some of science's most important ideas, from atoms to quantum computing, electricity to plate tectonics. Bestselling author Marcus Chown is a master at breaking down complex science into understandable bite-sized chunks and, in a similar vein to Infinity in the Palm of Your Hand, this will be perfectly suited to the curious nonscientist.
