Description
Information
In the fantasy universe of the phenomenally best-selling Discworld series, everything runs on magic and common sense. The world is flat and million-to-one chances happen nine times out of ten. Our world seems different - it runs on rules, often rather strange ones. Science is our way of finding out what those rules are. The appeal of Discworld is that it mostly makes sense, in a way that particle physics doesn't.

'The Science of Discworld' uses the magic of Discworld to illuminate the scientific rules that govern our world. We discover how puny and insignificant individual lives are against a cosmic backdrop of creation and disaster. Yet, paradoxically, we see how the richness of a universe based on rules has led to a complex world and at least one species that tried to get a grip on what was going on.

Ian Steward, Jack Cohen and Terry Pratchett have combined talents to tell the story of the universe from outside, looking in. And from the outside it's as magical as any world on a turtle . . .
