Rutherford and Fry’s Complete Guide to Absolutely Everything (Abridged)

Bantam Press, 2021

Coming Autumn 2021

We all rely on our gut feelings. But intuition is a terrible guide. If we believed what our minds tell us, we’d all think the world is flat (it’s not even round), the sun orbits the Earth (nope), and that a day is made of twenty-four hours (close but also no).

Now, in their first ever book together, Drs Hannah Fry and Adam Rutherford will show you that reality is not what it seems, common sense is neither common nor sensible, and our minds have evolved to lie to us all the time. They will take you on thrilling journey through time and space, from the beginnings of life on Earth to wondrous aliens elsewhere in the galaxies, from the darkest depths of infinity – via a hypnotised snail – to the brightest recesses of our minds.

Rutherford and Fry are your inimitable guides to the complete guide to absolutely everything*

*Abridged, and heavily edited, especially the boring bits
