Elephants on Acid by Alex Boese


This book is a great read for anyone fascinated by science, or for anyone who likes a laugh at the extreme and bizarre lengths some scientists will go to just in the name of all that is “science”.

The topics covered in this book range from slightly macabre to completely hilarious. Some of the experiments within the book are so well-known that I had already heard of them but it was great to see them written about in a slightly comical way.

The book isn’t difficult to read or understand so even if you are not a huge science buff this book will still be a great read.

I did think that the topic of Elephants on Acid should have been a bigger chapter as it was the name of the book but Zombie Kittens and other extreme tales more than make up for this.

Definitely  a recommended read, thoroughly  enjoyable.
