About the Author
Dr Karl Kruszelnicki burst onto the scene in 1981 when he began presenting the Great Moments In Science segment on radio Double J (the precursor to Triple J) to pay his way through medical school. With his trademark fast-talking, zany take on anything and everything scientific, he quickly built an audience keen to learn more about our amazing world and be entertained at the same time. Since then, his media career has exploded and now includes TV, books, newspapers, magazines, scripting, professional speaking, and of course, the Net.
Breakfast of boffins, added brain enhancers, high fallutin' - in his brand new book, Dr Karl places the food industry under the microscope, gives an insight to your insides , reveals how hamburgers can kill and puts his palate on the line - all in the name of scientific entertainment.
This is popular science for ages 8 to eighty with no artificial facts or flavours. a delightful blend of finger-lickin' science, with tasty chunks of brain-boosting goodness.
