At the Edge of Uncertainty

11 Discoveries Taking Science by Surprise


The bestselling author of FreeRadicals takes readers on a whirlwind tour of the most controversial areasof modern science

The atom, the big bang, DNA, natural selection—all are ideasthat have revolutionized science; and all were dismissed out of hand when theyfirst appeared. The surprises haven’t stopped in recent years, and in At theEdge of Uncertainty, bestselling author Michael Brooks investigates the newwave of radical insights that are shaping the future of scientific discovery.

Brooks takes us to the extreme frontiers of what we understandabout the world. He journeys from the observations that might rewrite our storyof how the cosmos came to be, through the novel biology behind our will tolive, and on to the physiological root of consciousness. Along the way, heexamines how it’s time to redress the gender imbalance in clinical trials,explores how merging humans with other species might provide a solution to theshortage of organ donors, and finds out whether the universe really is like acomputer or if the flow of time is a mere illusion.
