And learn about radiation by way of radium parties in the 20's, where people drank glow-in-the-dark cocktails - until their jaws fell off! This witty, accessible narrative covers all the core topics for Physics at GCSE. Each section includes a bullet-summary and, for curious minds and clever-clogs, bonus mini-chapters exploring fascinating, extracurricular science: everything from Schrodinger's cat to quantum mechanics. With words by Tom Whipple, Science Editor at The Times and debut children's author, this is one of the first in a series of fresh, funny and much-needed study-aids.
