Comedian Robin Ince quickly abandoned science at school, bored by a fog of dull lessons and intimidated by the barrage of equations. Twenty years later, Ince fell in love and now presents one of the world’s most popular science podcasts.

In his erudite and witty book, Ince reveals why scientific wonder isn’t just for the professionals. Filled with interviews featuring astronauts, comedians, teachers, quantum physicists, neuroscientists and more, The Importance of Being Interested is an optimistic and profound book that explores why so many wrongly think science is distant and difficult and will leave you filled with a thirst for intellectual adventure.
