Dr. Dwight Bowman is one of more than 50 scientists commissioned to explain scientific stumpers. In true fashion, Dr. Bowman shares an example of a parasite that can change the social (and even reproductive!) habits of its host.
Excerpted from the Introduction:
Fortunately, there are still mysteries that can’t be entirely explained in a few mouse clicks. With this book, we wanted to bring back a sense of the unknown that has been lost in the age of information. … We hope that by reading this book, you’ll learn some interesting things, but also enjoy reflecting on the mysteries themselves.
Published by Chronicle Books and released in 2012, The Where The Why and The How is available online.
