If you fancy reading Stuff Matters: The Strange Stories of the Marvellous Materials that Shape Our Man-made World by Mark Miodownik which has won the 2014 Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books, we have it in stock.  
 
The judges said: “This brilliantly written book is a fresh take on material science that makes even the most everyday stuff exciting and interesting. It demonstrates just how creative and ingenious the human mind can be in its ability to incorporate them into our lives.”
 
This prize celebrates outstanding popular science books from around the world and is open to authors of science books written for a non-specialist audience.Sean Carroll’s story of the hunt for the Higgs, The Particle at the End of the Universe, won the award in 2013.
