10 Women Who Changed Science (available to pre-order, follow this link)



This book presents the lives and work of ten women who changed science, drawn from several different areas of science. Co-written with Catherine Whitlock, this is our own personal list of ten women who have contributed so much to their respective fields.

  • Henrietta Leavitt (astronomy)
  • Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin (astronomy)
  • Lise Meitner (physics)
  • Chien-Shiung Wu (physics)
  • Marie Curie (chemistry)
  • Dorothy Crowfoot Hodgkin (chemistry)
  • Virginia Apgar (medicine)
  • Gertrude Elion (medicine)
  • Rita Levi-Montalicini (biology)
  • Hilde Mangold (biology)


Some of these you may have heard of, others maybe not. You can find out all about them in our upcoming book.....


10 Things We've Learned in Space (available now to pre-order, follow this link)
This book presents some of the highlights of what we have learned since the dawn of the space age in 1957. In the nearly 60 years since then, we have sent space probes to every planet in the Solar System, to some of its asteroids, and to even land on a comet. 

Particle - the search for the theory of everything
This book looks at our search for the theory of everything. It traces our quest to understand matter and the forces of nature, from the early ideas of atoms proposed by the Greeks to the discovery of the Higgs boson and the ongoing attempts to unify gravity with the three other forces in nature.

Why we are not alone
This book looks at the famous Drake equation, which attempts to determine the chances of finding intelligent life beyond our own planet. In each chapter, we look at each term of the Drake equation, giving the latest information available on the value for that term. At the end of the book, we conclude that there must be intelligent life out there, and that it is just a matter o time before we detect it.
