|The Science of Discworld II: The Globe||now in paperback|
The Sunday Times bestseller
|Terry Pratchett, Ian Stewart, and Jack Cohen|
The Elves have invaded Roundworld, and the wizards of Unseen University
decide that they have to do something about it. Their first attempt turns
London into a dozy Neanderthal village where nothing much has happened for
the last million years. But with the aid of Isaac Newton, William Shakespeare,
and a hitherto unknown Greek philosopher, anything can happen. And does.
As usual, the Discworld action is punctuated by Very Big Footnotes (thinly disguised as even-numbered chapters) about the underlying science (and art and religion and philosophy).
