Galileo, Einstein, Curie, Darwin, Hawking --- we know the names, but how much do we really know about these people? Galileo gained notoriety over his battle with the Vatican, but did you know that this “father of modern science” was also an accomplished lute player? And Darwin of course discovered the principle by which new species are formed, but his bold curiosity extended to the dinner table as well. (And how many people can say they’ve eaten an owl!) In EUREKA! John Grant --- author of DEBUNK IT!, DISCARDED SCIENCE, SPOOKY SCIENCE and many others --- offers fifty vivid portraits of groundbreaking scientists. From lutes and owls to astronomy and evolution, EUREKA! explains how these scientific geniuses have shaped our understanding --- and how they spent their free time as well.

In DEBUNK IT!, author John Grant uses modern, ripped-from-the-headlines examples to clearly explain how to identify bad evidence and poor arguments. He provides a roundup of the rhetorical tricks people use when attempting to pull the wool over our eyes, and even offers advice about how to take these unscrupulous pundits down. So if you’re tired of hearing blowhards spouting off about climate change, history, evolution, medicine, and more, this is the book for you. DEBUNK IT! is the ultimate guide for young readers seeking a firmer footing in a world that’s full of holes.
