John Gribbin

Dr John Gribbin received a PhD in astrophysics from Cambridge University and is currently Visiting Fellow in Astronomy at the University of Sussex, where he was a member of a team there that measured the age of the Universe.

Gribbin is without doubt the most prolific British popular science writer with a huge output both alone and co-authored with his wife, Mary. He has also written science fiction with Marcus Chown and others.

He has worked in radio, making and presenting programmes for the BBC, and in television, occasionally in front of the cameras but more often as an adviser on science programmes.

His many books include In Search of Schrödinger’s Cat, Schrödinger’s Kittens, Q Is for Quantum and Science: A History. He lives in Sussex, England.

You can find out more about Gribbin's writing at his website, but it's something of a time capsule as it doesn't seem to have been updated since 1996.

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

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.

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