Ziya Tong ;

One of the world’s most engaging science journalists presents a groundbreaking and wonder-filled look at the hidden things impacting our lives in her forthcoming book, The Reality Bubble: Blind Spots, Hidden Truths, and the Dangerous Illusions that Shape Our World. This vitally important new book shows how science, and the curiosity that drives it, can help civilization flourish by opening our eyes to the landscape laid out before us. Fast-paced, utterly fascinating and deeply humane, The Reality Bubble proves there is more to the world than meets the eye.
