Big Questions Incredible Adventures in Thinking

by Matthew Morrison

Big Questions Incredible Adventures in Thinking Synopsis

The sequel to the hugely acclaimed Big Numbers , Big Questions brings the most challenging issues about life, the universe and everything to 10-13 year olds. Is there a reason for everything? Can you trust the experts? Can you prove who you are? Do animals have rights? Does anything really exist? Is there only one answer? Asking questions can be a very risky business. When we start to think about things we've always taken for granted, we can end up with some surprising results. Big Questions is full of entertaining and challenging questions about the world around us - many of them have been puzzled over for thousands of years. The book includes sections on How to Win an Argument, Mind, Bodies and Brains and Right and Wrong.

Big Questions Incredible Adventures in Thinking Press Reviews

'Races through black holes and the thin green smear on Earth's surface (life as we know it), to the lengths of light and speed of the air... a feast of facts. Would entertain bright children and adults alike.' New Scientist 'Deftly explains big ideas through simple, but not patronising language' Lindsay Fraser, Guardian
