Description - The Birds, the Bees and the Platypuses by Michael Gross

Michael Gross has been writing about science full time for the last eight years and as a night time hobby for the previous seven. From his treasure troves, he now presents his favourite science stories from these 15 years. What are the attractions that make him revisit a topic or reread an article again and again? Often, it's the sheer craziness of wildly unexpected findings or grotesquely oversized challenges. In other stories, there is a sexy element or an unexpected insight into the human condition. And sometimes, when reporting new and future technologies, the author just can't help thinking: "cooooooool!" So here are more than 60 crazy, sexy and cool science stories for you to enjoy.

Buy The Birds, the Bees and the Platypuses by Michael Gross from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
