5-star reviews from Goodreads:

“Interesting, intriguing and enjoyable reading. The book tackles a series of very actual topics, bringing up valuable scientific data, presented and explained in an easily comprehendable manner. The author shares also the fruit of his personal reflections on isocial, economic, educational and other matters – all the same in a casual, non-overdidactic manner, even with a humouristic twist every now and then. A lecture that made me feel enriched and entertained at the same time.”
– Maria Rasmussen

“This book presents a kaleidoscopic view of the most prominent discoveries and inventions of our time and their role in the quest for understanding of the Universe. It comes with a fairly intense discussion on what the challenges in science are now and how the near future may be shaped by our decisions. Although, the opinions come from the academic/ physicist/ engineer point of view, the book is extremely entertaining and accessible. Some hard science peppered with popular culture facts and heroes that make the journey vibrant and entertaining. Lovely and refreshing – I highly recommend this book to anyone!”
– Luiza Dihoru

“An interesting book, a new way to understand life and the world around us. Mr Smith is an author whom you will hear about again in the future.”
– Alexandru Ionescu

“Some books are linear, dry and unimaginatively limited to one subject. Not this one. This book takes you on a colorful whirlwind journey from space elevators to Victorian engineering, challenges of research funding, Brexit, deadly viruses, the application of AI in grassland management, shampoo packaging design, close encounters of the third kind and Schrödinger’s cat. All peppered with entertaining digressions involving more often than not Sherlock Holmes, Star Trek, the Greek islands and a plethora of British scientists, inventors and political figures.

Combining scientific rigor and a witty colloquial language, this is the work of Somerset based talented renaissance man and Arthur Conan Doyle enthusiast, Lyndon Smith – university professor, researcher, AI guru, author, gifted illustrator and all in all accomplished engineer.

If you ever found yourself wondering why the progress of science might be hindered, if you are interested the challenges of applied research in modern day Britain, the prevalence of mathematical modelling and niche analysis over synthesis and big idea thinking, this is the perfect book for you. Warmly recommended!”
