‘A SEWAGE WORKS IS SUCH FUN, QUITE APART FROM BEING SUCH A FINE MONUMENT TO SCIENCE…’

The zestful and ebullient Magnus Pyke once again transports us into his colourful world of science-made-easy and discusses the tremendous advantages that technology can give us — if only we control it properly. Already the signs are encouraging: we have set aside areas in our towns to be free of wheeled traffic; we prefer babies to be born out of hospital; and we often say ‘thank you, no’ when science offers a tempting free gift.

Magnus Pyke’s infectious optimism and sparkling originality can only but succeed in making us believe that the world is not such a bad place after all.
