In the fascinating new book from the bestselling author of Humanology, Luke O Neill explores some of the big human questions and tells us what science has to say about topics such as gender, addiction, and euthanasia.

In this fascinating and thought-provoking book, Ireland’s favourite scientist Professor Luke O’Neill grapples with life’s biggest questions and tells us what science has to say about them: Do we have control over our lives? Can we escape working in bullsh*t jobs? Must we vaccinate? Are men’s and women’s brains different? Will we destroy the planet? As he covers topics such as global pandemics, addiction and euthanasia, Luke’s trademark easy wit and clever pop-culture references deconstruct the science to make complex questions accessible. Arriving at science’s definitive answers to some of the most controversial issues human beings have to contend with, Never Mind the B#ll*cks, Here’s the Science is a celebration of science and hard facts in a time of fake news and sometimes unhelpful groupthink.

'With his appealing voice and moderate accent, Irish national Ruairi Conaghan performs this entertaining review of popular science topics, written by an Irish biochemistry professor with a knack for accessible writing. The summaries of what science knows about topics like gender differences, discrimination, and global warming intend to debunk common misconceptions and resolve gnarly controversies. The topics and the sheer volume of impressive research need careful handling to moderate the potential "know-it-all" tone of this type of writing. Conaghan's amiable narration keeps the audio light and prevents the author's love of science from sounding too nerdy. Though the conventions of the Irish language and culture will require adjustments for some Americans, the information is so fascinating that most people will find it hard to stop listening.'
