Now in print for over fifty years, New Scientist is the bestselling and fastest growing science magazine in the world. Why are Orangutans Orange? is compiled and edited by Mick O'Hare, production editor of New Scientist, who is frequently interviewed on television and radio.
"The editor of New Scientist is at it again, illuminating the wacky side of science and scientists. The time the organizing principle is the remarkable ingenuity shown by hard-working scientists, ingenuity that sometimes verges on, well, craziness. A deeply fascinating and occasionally rib-tickling book." -- Booklist
