It’s been a while since the last news on the book, but it’s still very much on its way – and here’s the cover to prove it! It’s out in the UK on October 8, 2015, and it’s already available to preorder on Amazon here. A little more information follows if this is the first you’ve heard about it!
The book’s titled “Why Does Asparagus Make Your Wee Smell?: And 57 other curious food and drink questions”, and gives concise explanations on a range of weird food and drink effects or oddities, and the chemistry behind them. Each question is illustrated with a graphic that breaks down the key points simply and succinctly, and shows the chemical compounds being discussed.
Those of you who have been following the development of the book will know that it was originally slated for release back in May, but got pushed back a little. It’s now already off to the printers, so the good news is there’ll be no more delays. As it turns out, it’ll be nicely timed in advance of Christmas – perfect if you’re struggling for gift ideas for science or food enthusiasts!
The book will also be available in book stores on its release, as well as other online vendors. The publishers, Orion, have no definite plans for overseas publishing as yet, but hopefully a little after the UK release it may well make it elsewhere. I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated!
Finally, big thanks to everyone who’s a regular reader of the blog – this book wouldn’t have been possible without everyone’s enthusiasm for the site. I hope that, when it’s eventually released, it’s worth the wait!
One reply on “Why Does Asparagus Make Your Wee Smell? Book Cover Reveal!”
[…] 今年诞生了许多伪科学产品，水素水是其中的代表作。抛开它是胡扯的还是欺骗的这些话，大众压倒性的普通认知比起正确的化学和化学产品来说真是讽刺。当然我觉得就算是胡说也是带有魅力，倒不是赞同观点，但是这些产品广告宣传的表现力和吸引力是非常好的。为了传达出正确的化学的魅力，有必要让大众感到化学（科学）普及的必要性，在这个意义上驱使了inforgrafics化学信息图表的建立、（inforgrafics是什么？参考相关记事）好看以及便于理解的书籍《为什么烟熏腊肉会闻起来香吃起来好吃》是非常不错的。（欢迎点击链接，虽然是英文内容，但是图片真棒，真心赞！） […]
