Jorge Cham & Daniel Whiteson – We Have No Idea

This month’s book is We have no idea by the creators of PHD Comics, Jorge Cham and Daniel Whiteson. It discusses the great unsolved problems of physics in a way which is guaranteed to entertain.  We hear from the authors, and the Chemistry World team discuss why the llama is the perfect animal for explaining the concept of binding energy.

You can read our review of We have no idea here, and find all our book reviews here.

Next month, we’ll be discussing the classic science fiction work of Mary Shelley in a new annotated version of Frankenstein: Annotated for Scientists, Engineers, and Creators of All Kinds edited by David H Guston, Ed Finn and Jason Scott Robert. 

We want to include you, the Chemistry World  reader, in the conversation so tweet your thoughts to @ChemistryWorld, or use the hashtag #BookClubCW and we’ll endeavour to include your opinions (or questions) in the podcast.
