What is static electricity? How do magnets work? Is light made of waves or particles? What, really, is the theory of relativity all about? And who were all those great scientists—from Ptolemy, Archimedes, and Copernicus to Descartes, Hume, and Newton, and many, many more? Why do we still hear their names today?

In How to Speak Science, scientist and YouTube personality Bruce Benamran reminds us that, in this age of smartphones, artificial intelligence, supercolliders, supercomputers, and other cutting-edge technology, we’ve lost touch with many of the most basic science concepts that launched our information age. And in simple, math-free explanations and just-the-good-parts historical recaps, he shows us that the landmark science and history’s greatest scientists and discoveries don’t have to remain beyond our grasp.
