Overview

"What's so funny about science? Sidney Harris, that's what." -Isaac Asimov

"The humor in science that is most widely laughed at comes from non-scientists, like the cartoonist Sidney Harris." -The New York Times Book Review

Sidney Harris is America's foremost science cartoonist. He has been praised by luminaries such as Linus Pauling and Isaac Asimov, as well as countless others throughout the world, for his ability to find humor in what is traditionally regarded as a somewhat dry subject.

Harris does for science what Scott Adams (the creator of Dilbert) does for business: his unique perspective illustrates the scientific and technological environments in such a funny way that everyone can enjoy it.

Now this best-selling book has been updated and revised with new cartoons. It's the perfect gift for a whole new generation of fans. But even if you're only mildly interested in science and technology—or just think that what goes on in those disciplines can be wacky at times—then this book is guaranteed to make you laugh out loud!
