Have you ever been reminded to take off your coat indoors or you won't "feel the benefit" when you leave? That what you need to cool down is a nice cup of tea? And that you have to let that red wine breathe to improve its taste? Tackling the facts we all think we know, one-by-one, award-winning science writer David Bradley's clear and witty writing examines the science behind the statements to reveal why what you thought was right...is wrong.

"Sooooo boring, despite a good topic"
The style of writing left me screaming to rip my ear phones off. How can the narrator read out a long computer generated password: capital A, semi-colon, little G, inverted comma, capital Z, little S, ampersand ... twice? You know how natural scientists are avoided in the pub at university because they just don't realise how easy it is to bore normal human beings? Welcome to the natural scientists' corner. The Big Bang without the gags. Shame, because I really did want some of those promised explanations, but I can't listen to it.
