Críticas

'The Universe Inside You is science writer Brian Clegg's latest attempt to catalogue a world of science that you probably should remember from school but never quite paid enough attention to.' -- New Scientist '[The Universe Inside You] explains the inner workings of your body in order to explore the outermost workings of the universe. I'm completely gripped.' -- Jessica Powell, Top Sante

Descripción del producto

Built from the debris of exploding stars that floated through space for billions of years, home to a zoo of tiny aliens, and controlled by a brain with more possible connections than there are atoms in the universe, the human body is the most incredible thing in existence.


In the sequel to his bestselling Inflight Science, Brian Clegg explores mitochondria, in-cell powerhouses which are thought to have once been separate creatures; how your eyes are quantum traps, consuming photons of light from the night sky that have travelled for millions of years; your many senses, which include the ability to detect warps in space and time, and why meeting an attractive person can turn you into a gibbering idiot.


Read THE UNIVERSE INSIDE YOU and you'll never look at yourself the same way again.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Muy interesante, aunque un poco complejo 9 de mayo de 2013
Por Javier TOP 500 COMENTARISTAS
Formato:Versión Kindle|Compra verificada
Este libro lo compré en una promoción en la que me salió a menos de dos euros. Posiblemente, al precio normal, no lo habría comprado.

En cualquier caso, me alegro de haberlo comprado, ya que el libro (en inglés, claro), explica muchísimas cosas del cuerpo humano y a menudo se permite muchas divagaciones interesantes, aunque a veces se hace demasiado complejo para alguien sin ciertos conocimientos del tema.

Además, el libro dispone de una página web donde se pueden realizar los "experimentos" que se proponen.

I am very interested in science but have no further education in this field, however, reading this book is a fountain of knowledge for me. The objectivity, explanations and the references to experiments make it even for me, being a foreigner, easy to understand.

The Universe Inside You: The Extreme Science of the Human Body From Quantum Theory to the Mysteries of the Brain by Brian Clegg

"The Universe Inside You" is a very engaging and educational book that takes us on an exploration of science of our bodies. By using our body as a laboratory the author cleverly takes us to other realms of science and helps us gain a better understanding of the world around and in us. Popular science writer Brian Clegg, provides the reader with a fun and interesting way to learn about the peculiarities of the human body by using the most current of scientific knowledge. I enjoyed this accessible and fun science book. This 224-page book is composed of the following nine chapters: 1. In the mirror, 2. A single hair, 3. Locked up in a cell, 4. Through fresh eyes, Marching on the stomach, 6. Feeling dizzy, 7. Two by two, 8. Crowning glory, and 9. Mirror, mirror.

Positives:
1. Great accessible science writing.
2. A fun science book.
3. A very engaging book, the author provides experiments and a link so that readers can test out firsthand the concepts presented.
4. Great use of converging sciences at an accessible level to explain the human body.
5. A fun-filled fact book. "A typical human head houses around 100,000 hairs, those with blonde will usually have about the average, and those with red hair rather fewer". The book is loaded with interesting factoids.
6. Human evolution...never boring.
7. A number of scientific discoveries inserted into an interesting narrative.
8. So much scientific territory was covered in such a brief book. Kudos.
9. The standard model of physics.
10. The significance of water in biology.
11. Fun with genetics. DNA, RNA, genes, epigenetics...
12. Basic quantum physics.
13. Optics for the masses...I see.
14. Cosmology for good measure.
15. Does a good job of debunking many long-held preconceptions in science.
16. Elementary chemistry.
17. Laws of thermodynamics.
18. The five key flavors detected by our taste buds.
19. A nice discussion about our senses.
20. The four forces that make it possible for our bodies to exist. Interesting.
21. Einstein's special relativity.
22. Thought-provoking ideas, time travel.
23. The fascinating world of the human brain. Memory, decision-making and so much cool stuff.
24. A very interesting look at evolution and some misconceptions.
25. An appendix that basically serves as a bibliography.

Negatives:
1. This book is intended for the masses. Scientists or people heavily involved in any of these fields will find the book fairly basic.
2. A couple of errors of little consequence. A repeated word, a misspell...but that was about it.
3. No links to the appendix section.

In summary, I really enjoyed this book. It's a fun science book that would make for a perfect gift for the layperson interested in science. I've read a number of science books as my further suggestions below will attest so a lot of what is presented in this book I am familiar with but I always learn something new and it also helped me better understand scientific concepts. Brian Clegg does a wonderful job of introducing readers to a number of scientific fields while using the human body as the template of the journey. A worthwhile and enlightening read for the masses, I recommend it.

Coyne, "The Making of the Fittest: DNA and the Ultimate Forensic Record of Evolution" by Sean B.

Gazzaniga, "Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me): Why We Justify Foolish Beliefs, Bad Decisions, and Hurtful Acts" by Carol Travis and Elliot Aronson, "Science Matters: Achieving Scientific Literacy" by Robert M. Hazen and James Trefil, and "SuperSense: Why We Believe in the Unbelievable" by Bruce M. Hood.

This book was just full of little facts about the human body that most people wouldn't know. Plus Brian Clegg is a genius. He has written many other books about different sciences.

After reading many popular science books, I could grasp some of the phenomena scientists know how about. Finaly I could understand the difference between weight and mass; I could visualize easily an atom and its particles; and more.

Highly recommended!

The author covers a wide array of topics from biology to quantum theory. The topics are brief and each topic is a comfortable blend of stuff we know vs the stuff we don't know (most of us anyways) which doesn't alienate the reader but doesn't bore the reader as well.

I recommend this book for parents looking to instill the fascination of science in their kids to adults who want a refresher and brief discussions to topics they're not very familiar with.
