The Science Behind Jules Verne's Moon Novels: Andrew May **** 13 March 2018 - Does what it says on the tin - and it's remarkable just how much science of the day Verne got into these books.

Pavlov's Dog: Adam Hart-Davis **** 12 March 2018 - The veteran TV presenter gives a quick guide to 50 classic psychology experiments. Far less mannered than his TV style.

The Feed: Nick Clark Windo **** 3 February 2018 - a post-apocalyptic future where a totally networked society falls apart after the network goes down. Includes unlikely body snatching minds and a whole lot of literary descriptive material - but very good in parts.

This site has no connection with Popular Science magazine or other sites and publications with a similar name.

The website should not be eaten or used where it can come into contact with water.

Much of the content of this site is written by popular science writers or friends of popular science writers. Inevitably many of the reviews in such a small community are written by or about someone we know. We always aim to be impartial in our reviews, but there is a connection which we need make clear, as there is no intention to deceive. The content of any review or article is solely the opinion of the author and should not be read or understood on any other basis. The site exists to promote popular science writing and popular science authors and for this reason should be considered promotional material, just as the editorial reviews in an online bookshop or the blurb on the back of a book should be considered promotional.
