Who is Sue Baker

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. The primary attraction of this collection is the brevity of its chapters, which explain in language comprehensible to non-scientists recent scientific discoveries, inventions and eureka moments that are set to re-shape the world. Mirrors as a way of treating the pain of phantom limbs; floods correlated with increased sun-spot activity; evidence of a giant ocean on Mars; the Terror-Hertz Scanners whose T-rays could revolutionise airport security. All of which mean there is no time to get bored before being amazed again.
