What if you could learn everything there is to know about a Rubik’s Cube – except how to solve it – in 30 seconds? Or Pavlo’s Dogs or universal gravitation theory?
This month we’ve been delving into Icon Books’ 30-Second series – take an idea; two pages; a couple of hundred words and a picture and you’ve got the recipe for quick learning. Ideal for those summer afternoons when you don’t want anything too heavy to read – but can’t bear to part from your science.
In 30-Second Psychology you’ll learn about the 50 most thought-provoking psychologies theories – including psychoanalysis, Milgram’s obedience study and Charcot’s hysteria – from a range of authors including Vaughan Bell and Christian Jarrett.
Learn about Ockham’s Razor, Schrödinger’s Cat, quantum mechanics and 47 other theories from authors such as Michael Brooks and Jim Al-Khalili in just half a minute in 30-Second Theories.
And 30-Second Maths covers the 50 most mind-expanding mathematical theories including Fermat’s Last Theorem and Godel’s incompleteness theorem for a general reader in just 30 seconds.
