I think this is the best response I could possibly have had to the Worm book:
We read of your book in the FT about Sweden being great Swedophiles – it was a great book capturing lots of details about Sweden – that you can see but don’t really understand. Its still my favourite country.
Anyway that led to your Worm book – which started all these questions whirring in my mind – which in a space of two months has led me back to University. I have started an MSc course on Structural Molecular Biology – its just so fascinating and has rejuvenated me. Hopefully, I’ll be able to keep up with my daughter now!
Isn’t that what pop science books are meant to do?
