Today I have the pleasure of going to work for the sole purpose of a book signing with Dr. Karl Kruszelnicki. Having hosted and worked on book signings at my store with Dr Karl twice before I know I’m in for a fun filled and crazy day! As many people know Dr. Karl is not only a scientific genius with something like four degrees, but he is a genuinely nice all around guy who loves nothing more than to chat to people and make them laugh.
In honour of being part of his book signing, I’m giving away one signed copy of his latest release ‘Game of Knowns’ to one lucky reader on both my blog and another via facebook. To go in the draw to win one of these two signed copies of his book simply leave a comment on either this blog or the facebook status telling me of your favourite scientific fact. The more unusual and funnier the better! It’s that simple.
I’ve never been a big science buff, so don’t be afraid to enter if your not science mad either. Dr. Karl has a way of informing and entertaining his readers all at the same time. He doesn’t talk down in his books and he just makes science fun. Untill reading his books last year, my basic science trivia knowledge was made up from the back of Libra pads that I read when I was younger. Hence feel free to submit your most favourite and hilarious science fact. The more unusual and quirky the better 🙂
Competition closes Midnight Sunday 22nd December, with winner’s announced ASAP. Open to Australian residents only due to the cost of postage.
So don’t forget to leave a comment for your chance to win.
There are Known Knowns,
Known Unknowns, and
And then there is Dr Karl.
The inimitable Dr Karl reigns once more in his Dynasty of 34 Science Books with scintillating science scenarios, techie tales and tasty morsels to sate even the most haemoglobin-thirsty of his army of followers.
In Game of Knowns, he divulges why psychopaths make good kings, how smartphones dumb down our conversations, why the left side of your face is the most attractive, how the female worker bee gets a raw deal and why we drink beer faster when it is served in a curved glass. He discloses the amazing opportunities that 3D Printing will bring, the magic of hoverboards, solemnly shares why dark matter matters, and spills the scientific basis of wealth distribution.
Thereby Science is decreed to be the only true ruler of the kingdom, and there is none better to claim the Throne than Australia’s most trusted and knowledge-thirsty scientist – Dr Karl
