Here's what you say about us...

With more than five million readers, DISCOVER is the leading science magazine aimed at the general public. Founded in 1980, this award-winning magazine publishes articles covering science, technology, and the future. New York Magazine called DISCOVER "the science magazine for the interested layman," and the Chicago Tribune said DISCOVER "is the science magazine for anyone who flunked eleventh-grade biology. It tackles topics ranging from global warming to black holes to Neanderthals with a refreshing lack of academic jargon."

Dean Christopher is a regular contributor to DISCOVER, writing book reviews and contributing to the very same column, "20 Things You Didn't Know About," that inspired this book. He has also served as editor-at-large for SPIN magazine and as a contributor to OMNI. Dean's constant yearning to learn has led him to become fluent in French and Spanish. He also spent a decade as a pianist, arranger, and composer in New York, Paris, and Madrid. Dean currently lives in Beverly Hills, California.
