Title: 50 Shades Of Grey Matter
Author: Dr Karl Kruszelnicki
Publisher: Pan Macmillan Australia
About the book: Have you ever wondered why it is dark at night? Have you ever walked into a room and immediately forgotten why you are there?
Well this book holds the answers. Learn about the wonderful ways of science and impress your friends with knowledge such as why the sky is blue, all thanks to Dr Karl.
What I thought: I really loved this book because Dr Karl makes science fun and funny. As well as the science facts in the book, some of the general knowledge in it can be useful and clever to show off! For instance, I was able to tell my mum why she’d forgotten why she’d entered a room…
Having read one Dr Karl book, I immediately searched out others.
I would recommend this book for ages 12+ as some of the science in there, although being presented in a fun way, can get a bit confusing. If you like Adam Spencer, then you will love Dr Karl.
