    Real review to follow Once upon a time, there was Discworld There still is an adequate supply Discworld is the flat world, carried through space on the back of a giant turtle, which has been the source of, so far, twenty three novels, four maps, an encyclopaedia, two animated series, t shirts, scarves, models, badges, beer, embroidery, pens, posters, and probably, by the time this is published, talcum powder and body splash if not, it can only be a matter of time.

    Back in the late 90s, there was a whole slew of Science Of books The science of Star Trek, X Files, Star Wars, all of them did their best to explain the fantastic in terms of what we already knew about science They weren t trying to disprove these worlds saying that warp speed is impossible, for example, or how The Force violates any number of natural laws but rather they tried to figur...

    Unfortunately the Science in this book was too basic for me, but I must applaud the authors for their approach through Discworld Now, what kept me reading was the story of the wizards I must point out that it was difficult not to cheat and skip over all the science chapters But I wou...

    The Science of Discworld is an odd sort of Discworld book Based on the name, I had thought it was going to delve intodetail about the fictional workings of the Discworld Like, say, how the giant turtle and the elephants stay alive outside of an atmosphere or how water on the Discworld gets replenished when it keeps falling off the disc If that last sentence makes it sound like I ve gone off the deep end, then you clearly haven t tried reading Discworld.The science in this book is actual The Science of Discworld is an odd sort of Discworld book Based on the name, I had thought it was going to delve intodetail about the fictional workings of the Discworld Like, say, how the giant turtle and the elephants stay alive outside of an atmosphere or how water on the Discworld gets replenished when it keeps falling off the disc If that last sentence makes it sound like I ve gone off the deep end, then you clearly haven t tried reading Discworld.The science in this book is actuallyabou...

    My girlfriend tried to buy this book for me while we were browsing a second hand bookshop I said No thanks and I said it firmly because I really don t like those series tie in books that people write which might have the original authors name on the cover but are actually written by second rate hacks hired by the publisher to milk the last drop of cash from the cow.Luckily my girlfriend ignored me completely and bought it anyway ...

    Although I loved the book, the title is maybe a little misleading Unlike The Science of Star Trek or The Science of Harry Potter, which will explain in exhaustive detail how it might be scientifically possible to build a transporter or a flying broom, The Science of Discworld uses the wizards of Discworld to explain science in our world Which on the Disc is called Roundworld, and is a wizard s experiment to see how a world without magi...

    I think this is a really good book I was surprised to find that it had alternating chapters of Discworld focus entertainment and our real world focus science I think many people would enjoy this Discworld portion and get a better grasp of what science can and can not accomplish by reading this book I would get a kick out of seeing this book listed in the bibliography of some high school science report There is enough real information to be used in that manner I think this format of tea I think this is a really good book I was surprised to find that it had alternating chapters of Discworld focus entertainment and our real world focus science I think many people would enjoy this Discworld port...

    There are a ton of these auxiliary Discworld books out there, and most of them have typically been difficult to find Luckily, it looks like they re getting easier to track down, which is exciting.I wasn t sure what to expect opening the book, but I m happy with how it was presented alternating chapters of the Wizards who I never felt had enough books in the latter half of Pratchett s writings and a deep dive into a pop science topic While the information in many cases is already dated There are a ton of these auxiliary Discworld books out there, and most of them have ty...
