The Atom. The Big Bang. DNA. Natural Selection - All these are ideas that have revolutionised science, which were dismissed out of hand when they first appeared. The surprises haven't stopped. Michael Brooks, bestselling author of 13 Things That Don't Make Sense, investigates the new wave of unexpected insights that are shaping the future of scientific discovery.

Through eleven radical new insights, Brooks takes us to the extreme frontiers of what we understand about the world. He journeys from the observations that might rewrite our history of the universe, through the novel biology behind our will to live, and on to the physiological root of consciousness.
