The Book of Strange But True Science by Publications International Ltd Pdf
Packed with hundreds of articles on the most interesting things that ever happened in science. Plus a few things that didn't. Filled with both pragmatic, commonsense explanations and outrageous revelations, Strange but True Science is packed with articles on all things scientific. Each chapter takes an intriguing subject - medical science, pets and animals, consumer gadgets, astronomy, food, mad scientists, the human body - and ferrets out the strange stories and lesser known truths.
Written clearly, the aim of the book “Strange but True” is to highlight some points. There are many incidences that occurred in the hospitals which are of general interest to the general readers. The author is conscious that some points may be sensitive so he made it clear that the book is not meant to insult, degrade, defame or anything like this to anyone. The author believes that this world and this country (U.K.) have given him so much, which he wants to give back to the world/country for the benefit of other people. As a Muslim, the author has questioned many beliefs common among Asian Muslims, which are frequently addressed in the mosques, written in so-called Islamic literature and believed by many Muslims. In addition to his professional knowledge as a medical doctor, the author’s overall general knowledge and knowledge in sciences is of high standard. He was selected to be trained as a magistrate, went through two stages of interviews, but because of his heavy workload as a consultant in the NHS, could not complete his training. His consultant colleagues from his last hospital, the manager of that hospital and the consultants from his previous jobs in NHS, where he worked as a junior doctor, speak very highly about him.
