Recensioner i media
"Absorbing, entertaining... provocative but compelling... eminently accessible and enjoyable. A real gas - in short!" -- Robin McKie * Observer * "Funny, clever and altogether effervescent... Kean writes superbly about science itself... A joy for any reader" -- James McConnachie * The Sunday Times * "There is no denying the pleasure and indeed the wealth of scientific information to be obtained from reading Caesar's Last Breath. It will change forever the way I think about breathing." * Financial Times * "It's a helluva read. And it's a gas." -- Tim Radford * The Guardian * "Kean is the teacher you wish you'd had: genial, companionable and infectiously enthusiastic. This is an entertaining and accessible guide to the mysterious vapour of gases. Popular science at its best." -- Simon Humphreys * Mail on Sunday *
