With a foreword by superstar comedian, musician and self-confessed science-nerd, Tim Minchin, and contributions from the likes of Tim Flannery, The Best Australian Science Writing 2013 has some big names and big ideas.

Could the dodo make a comeback? What does science tell us about the sex in Fifty Shades of Grey? Is giving up meat really the greenest option? Can you use tweets to spot a psychopath? Do birds make art? What do the Cold War and climate science have in common? And can a psychologist interpret your farts?

Including contributions from poets and psychologists; comedians and climate commentators; neuroscientists and novelists; star-gazers and science journalists, this is current, shocking, curious and intriguing writing about life and the universe.
