I am the creator of Pressman's Rock Trivia which sold over half million copies worldwide. My experience is in pop culture and music which has allowed me to know my market, so that I can provide the best concepts in cosmology and pop culture. This book is not aimed at the highly scientifically literate but rather individuals who seek and wish to understand the knowledge of the universe in an entertaining and creative way. I will use characters like Dr. Who and Superman to introduce theories. I will take complex theories like entanglement, time travel and quantum field theory while providing repetition and primary approaches, so that you can understand the concepts. In the book you will find blank sheets where you are encouraged to make notes or at least doodle. My simplified approaches come from my teaching background that includes more than twenty-five years with teaching in the Toronto District School Board. This book will open up a new world for you because I guarantee you will be able to pick up a book by Lawrence Krauss or John Gribbin or a magazine like Scientific American and understand the basic concepts of physics and cosmology. You will find that many of the theories will be repeated, reinforced and simplified (just like here) so that you will have no difficulty understanding the major components and ideas. Are you ready to be exposed to the world of Science Fiction and Comics that was inspired by real physics and cosmology? Get ready to rock and roll with book endorsements from physicists, science writers and educators. Please read each one. They include, Guy P.Harrison/science writer an author of Think, David Darling/science writer, astronomer and musician, Tommy Rodriguez/evolutionary biologist and scientist, Gail Moss Baymiller/Research and education, NYC Public Library, Daniel Burnstein, physicist and Educator and Principal for TDSB/ Carmelo Nanfara and an amazing cast of information providers in the book from Sean Carroll to John Gribbin to Brian Greene. Finally, I guarantee no New Age twists or pseudoscience. "In case you didn't get the memo, geeky is cool and nerdy is in. If anyone has doubts about that, Ian Liberman's brilliant book will prove the case page after page. Liberman's accessible and light touch with heavy science topics is the ideal formula for painless learning and memorable exploration. Young students and old science fans alike will love this exciting thrill-ride through a universe of wonders and unexpected turns." -Guy P. Harrison, author of Think: Why you should question everything In a sense, it is more than a book; it is a hub that connects the reader to the world of science. Excellent work! Daniel Burnstein, physicist and creator of Quantum Geometric Dynamics. For all would-be Sheldons out there, this is the book for you. Ian Liberman combines his lengthy teaching experience with an avid interest in SF, comic books, and rock & roll to create a book that will appeal to nerds -- a complimentary term! -- of all ages." David Darling, Science writer and Astronomer, author The Rocket Man: And Other Extraordinary Characters in the History of Flight "Congratulations, You are a Science Nerd," to those looking to broaden their understanding of physics, cosmology, and modern science in the 21st century." Tommy Rodriguez, a computational biologist, whose areas of interest is phylogenetics and evolutionary biology and is an advocate for the public understanding of science. Ian Liberman's book explains, clearly and concisely, and with wonderful photographs and illustrations, everything you need to know to be on your way to becoming a Science Nerd.

In this book, a scientist and dedicated film enthusiast discusses the portrayal of science in more than one hundred films, including science fiction, scientific biographies, and documentaries. Beginning with early films like Voyage to the Moon and Metropolis and concluding with more recent offerings like The Matrix, War of the Worlds, A Beautiful Mind, and An Inconvenient Truth, Sidney Perkowitz questions how much faith we can put into Hollywood's depiction of scientists and their work, how accurately these films capture scientific fact and theory, whether cataclysms like our collision with a comet can actually happen, and to what extent these films influence public opinion about science and the future. Bringing together history, scientific theory, and humorous observation, Hollywood Science features dozens of film stills and a list of the all-time best and worst science-fiction movies.
