Do You Think You’re Clever?

What happens if I drop an ant? What books are bad for you? What percentage of the world’s water is contained in a cow? The Oxbridge undergraduate interviews are infamous for their unique ways of assessing candidates, and from these peculiar enquiries, professors can tell just how smart you really are. John Farndon has collected together 75 of the most intriguing questions taken from actual admission interviews and gives full answers to each, taking the reader through the fascinating histories, philosophies, sciences and arts that underlie each problem. This is a book for everyone who likes to think they’re clever, or who thinks they’d like to be clever. And cleverness is not just knowing stuff, it’s how laterally, deeply and interestingly you can bend your brain. Guesstimating the population of Croydon, for example, opens a chain of thought from which you can predict the strength of a nuclear bomb …and that’s just the start of it.
**Recensie(s)**

‘As well as putting your smug relatives to the test, this book is an entertaining way of encouraging unusual thought and debate.’ — Oldie ‘A great book to dip into… you can hardly stop yourself wanting to see the next question.’ — Evan Davis, BBC Radio 4, Today ‘John Farndon has compiled one of the most thought-provoking and unique quiz books from the very questions posed in Oxbridge interviews in recent years. The questions will challenge even the most ardent of QI fans as we find ourselves on the receiving end.’ — Burton Mail ‘Light-hearted and informative quiz book.’ — Woman and Home Magazine ‘A fascinating little book.’ — Lizzy Siddal, Lizzy’s Literary Life blog

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

A masterpiece ahead of its time, a prescient rendering of a dark future, and the inspiration for the blockbuster film Blade Runner By 2021, the World War has killed millions, driving entire species into extinction and sending mankind off-planet. Those who remain covet any living creature, and for people who can’t afford one, companies built incredibly realistic simulacra: horses, birds, cats, sheep. They’ve even built humans. Immigrants to Mars receive androids so sophisticated they are indistinguishable from true men or women. Fearful of the havoc these artificial humans can wreak, the government bans them from Earth. Driven into hiding, unauthorized androids live among human beings, undetected. Rick Deckard, an officially sanctioned bounty hunter, is commissioned to find rogue androids and “retire” them. But when cornered, androids fight back—with lethal force. Praise for Philip K. Dick “The most consistently brilliant science fiction writer in the world.”—John Brunner “A kind of pulp-fiction Kafka, a prophet.”—The New York Times“[Philip K. Dick] sees all the sparkling—and terrifying—possibilities . . . that other authors shy away from.”—Rolling Stone
