The judges said: “We love this book because it’s a book about the future and it encourages curiosity and thinking for yourself. It’s about how the reader of this book can learn from what’s gone before, what other scientists have achieved and asks how you might change the world to make it a better place or make it safer or to get us to the moon… It shows how things can become quite surprising when it comes to science – including a chapter called ‘avoid being boiled alive’. It’s got some great top tips: don’t be too quick to accept the way things are being done, question whether there’s a better way. I think a book that encourages you not to be afraid to think outside the box has got to be a good thing.”
