Brian Clegg - Science author

Too many people find science dull and uninspiring. It shouldn't be. It's about how everything works. Us, our world, our universe. It's life and death stuff. And great science writing brings to life the people involved and the remarkable stories of their discoveries.

Brian Clegg is an award-winning British science writer and public speaker who has written over 40 popular science books and a growing range of novels.
