What is really going on, with everything? What are we, why are we here, what does it all mean? Tulett presents an overarching explanation of the universe and everything in it including planet Earth and the human world. Drawn into the story and woven together is a wide range of subject material from the fields of science, philosophy, religion, history, politics, economics, the law, popular culture, literary analysis, twenty-first century technology, and others. The work is more than a summary of current knowledge. A key purpose has been to present new syntheses, new insights. This book examines the how and the why of the world, and in doing so attempts to answer a number of big questions including those posed above. How the World Works is a feast for the mind, bursting with ideas that will provoke, inform and entertain.
