|Title||Nevermind the B#ll*cks|
‘Science is based on information that comes from experiments and data that have been independently verified. It is the antidote to fake news, and we need it now more than ever. My goal, using science as my only guide, is to get as close to the truth on major issues confronting our species today - control over your life, vaccination, dieting, mental health, addiction, legalising drugs, bullshit jobs, climate change, euthanasia, the future - issues that intrigue me and hopefully you!’ In his fascinating and thought-provoking book, Ireland’s favourite scientist Professor Luke O’Neill grapples with life’s biggest questions and tells us what science has to say about them. With his trademark wit and clever pop-culture references, Luke deconstructs the science to make complex questions accessible. Arriving at science’s definitive answers to some of the most controversial topics human beings have to grapple with, Never Mind the B#ll*cks, Here’s the Science is a celebration of hard facts at time when we need them most. ‘A celebration of scientific fact in an era charcterised by nebulous subjectivity.’ The Irish Times
|Title||The Secret Life of Sleep|
What makes us cross the line from waking to slumber? According to Harvard scientists it's our 'sleep switch' - a cluster of neurons in the hypothalamus. For the ancient Greeks it was the god Hypnos, caressing you with his wings. For the Blackfeet Indians, a butterfly. And in European children's tales, the Sandman, sprinkling you with dust. Why do we sleep? What happens in our brains when we sleep? Why are sleep patterns in modern Western industrialised countries so unhealthy? Is the boundary between sleep and wakefulness as clear cut as we might have supposed? How meaningful are dreams? Kat Duff brings insights from her own life, from the latest in sleep science, the paintings of Salvidor Dali, the musings of Michel de Montaigne, and wisdom and rituals from around the world and the past to paint a fascinating picture of a world that is both the most intimate and the most secret to us: sleep.
