Author/narrator Jim Al-Khalili charms listeners with his performance of this compact guide to using science in daily life. Al-Khalili, a physicist, bolsters listeners' understanding of science by explaining eight complex concepts--the theory of relativity, for example--through easy-to-understand analogies. He efficiently describes the scientific method and how it serves as an apt mindset for non-scientists who are navigating divisive topics such as climate change. Honoring facts and recognizing bias are part of his prescription for information literacy in everyday life. Some of Al Khalili's lessons are surprising; for instance, he confides in an appealing British accent that many scientists are happy when a theory proves false. Failure can lead to new pathways of discovery, which are all part of the joy of science. E.S.B. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2022]
