‘Science is based on information that comes from experiments and data that have been independently verified. It is the antidote to fake news, and we need it now more than ever. My goal, using science as my only guide, is to get as close to the truth on major issues confronting our species today – control over your life, vaccination, dieting, mental health, addiction, legalising drugs, bullshit jobs, climate change, euthanasia, the future – issues that intrigue me and hopefully you!’
In his fascinating and thought-provoking book, Ireland’s favourite scientist Professor Luke O’Neill grapples with life’s biggest questions and tells us what science has to say about them. With his trademark wit and clever pop-culture references, Luke deconstructs the science to make complex questions accessible. Arriving at science’s definitive answers to some of the most controversial topics human beings have to grapple with, Never Mind the B#ll*cks, Here’s the Science is a celebration of hard facts at time when we need them most.
‘A celebration of scientific fact in an era charcterised by nebulous subjectivity.’ The Irish Times
