  • Leah Elson draws upon her wildly popular web series, 60 Seconds of Science, in this highly entertaining and visually appealing giftable book of real-world scientific questions and answers.  

    How does DNA work?
    Does chicken noodle soup actually help with being sick?
    When cats purr, what is actually making the noise?
    Does singing to plants really help them grow?
    Is it possible to clone a woolly mammoth? 

    In the vein of Randall Munroe’s What If? and perfect for readers of Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, Leah Elson’s There Are No Stupid Questions … in Science covers biology, chemistry, physics, human physiology, and space—providing easy-to-understand, delightfully cheeky answers to over one hundred common questions, from the age-old, to the ridiculous, to the sublime. 

    “Science can be wonderfully silly, occasionally bizarre, but always awe-inspiring.”—Leah Elson
