What is it that helps both scorpions and cyclists to survive? What do raw eggs and gyroscopes have in common? And why does it matter?
In an age of string theory, fluid dynamics and biophysics, it can seem as if the science of our world is for only specialists and academics. Not so, insists Helen Czerski - and in this sparkling new audiobook she explores the patterns and connections that illustrate the grandest theories in the smallest everyday objects and experiences.
Linking what makes popcorn pop to Antarctic winds, coffee stains to blood tests, and ketchup bottles to aliens in space, every thread you pull in the fabric of everyday life shows you something new about the intricate patterns of our world.
Listen to Storm in a Teacup, and you will see and understand the world as you never did before.

Not such a big storm
I was a bit disappointed in the book which was highly recommened. It was interesting, but not sufficiently to maintain my initial enthusiasm. The book approached the physics issues in a light and homely fashion and presented some interesting facts. I do not regret listening to it but I would have welcomed being stretched a bit more.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading and listening to this book. The author brings together so many different scientific principles and helped me to understand how many things interact in the real world. I wish I had had this book when I was a student, it answers all of the questions my teachers didn't, and many more I hadn't even thought to ask. I will never look at my toaster the same way again!
