There's no reason at all why good popular science should be heavy and loaded with leading edge theory. I've a lot of time for fun and/or practical science facts type books, which The Geek Guide to Life promises to be - the subtitle tells us its about 'science's solutions to life's little problems' with examples such as 'how to boil the perfect egg' and 'how to rock at rock, paper, scissors.'

Got this as a stocking filler at christmas, and it falls into the exact sort of category of books I like to read around the festive season. Short, factual packets that are mildly diverting. Any avid viewer of QI will already know about most of these things. The art style is annoying side of quirky. Basically it came down as mildly diverting but mediocre.

This book contains some great tips and tricks regarding day-to-day life problems. The researches are legit, the humour is subtle are the illustrations are well-drawn. As a striving-to-be-a-geek human being, I recommend this book to be added to your bookshelf.
