Furry Logic: The Physics of Animal Life - Liz Kalaugher, Matin Durrani


I think others have mentioned the tone of the writing in this book.  I'm not fond of the trying-a-bit-too-hard to be funny style.  It's as if they think they have to cajole their readers along, so as not to be scared to death of physics.


I don't think most readers who would pick this volume up are too scared of science in general.


Points, however, for a cute title--I've catalogued enough books on fuzzy logic to appreciate this play on words.
