Day 7 of #SciBookWishList features Extremes by Kevin Fong

Get geared up for the Royal Institution’s CHRISTMAS LECTURES and plunge into the extreme.

Kevin Fong, host of this year’s legendary CHRISTMAS LECTURES at the Ri, examined the fragility, beauty and resilience of life.

What does it really mean to be alive? How does your body cope when tested by extreme temperatures? How has medicine defeated what was once lethal?

Fong’s passion for outer space weave through this engaging book, perfectly balancing scientific content with humility and humour.

Fong’s new book ‘Extreme Medicine: How Exploration Transformed Medicine in the Twentieth Century’ is out now.

Don’t forget: You can WIN a Golden Ticket to the CHRISTMAS LECTURES
