About this book
Now in mass market paperback, this is a laugh-out-loud science book surveying the oddest, most imaginative and just plain improbable research from around the globe. After reading it you may never look at scientists or the world in the same way. The author writes a weekly column on the subject in the "Guardian" and is the founder of the Ig Nobel Prizes.
The Guardian's weekly "Improbable" columnist and founder of the internationally renowned, very funny, and invariably profound Ig Nobel Awards tours some of the most improbable research studies in the world.
