56 massive science myths laid bare

Why does a lap dancer earn bigger tips when she's at her most fertile? Can just the whiff of a woman send a man's hormones surging? And were dinosaurs hot-blooded too? Is it true that diet portions actually make people fatter? Can toads really predict earthquakes? And what causes those ... what's the word I'm looking for ... tip-of-the-tongue experiences?

Thankfully not lost for words in this enlightening and humorous foray into the world of science, Dr Chris Smith - The Naked Scientist - strips down science to its bare essentials to sort fact from fiction and replace myths and misinformation with some seriously interesting medical, technological and biological breakthroughs.

About the author

Chris Smith

Chris Smith has wanted to be an author ever since he was eight and won a competition by writing story about a baby dinosaur who loved biscuits. That story is soon to be brought to life as a blockbuster Hollywood movie. Not really, he made that part up. Chris worked for many years as a newsreader and presenter on radio stations including Xfm and BBC Radio 1. That's where he met Greg James, and in between messing about on the airwaves the pair created the bestselling Kid Normal series. Chris lives in north London with his family and a cat called Mabel who can go invisible.
