ANTI GRAVITY Allegedly Humorous Writing from Scientific American STEVE MIRSKY

Steve Mirsky, humorist-turned-podcaster, has entertained and provoked readers of Scientific American magazine in his “Anti Gravity” column for the past ten years. With his sharp wit, wide-ranging interests, and droll application of a scientific viewpoint to pop culture, he has covered topics ranging from CSI’s influence on college majors to the cheap-Formica-billed woodpecker, from the absurdities of creation “science” to the inanities of politicians trying to address scientific topics on Sunday-morning talk shows. Podcasting is expanding Mirsky’s audience, and this book is timed to serve the rising interest in this fresh writing talent.

Steve Mirsky’s monthly column, “Anti Gravity,” appears in Scientific American, and he also produces and narrates Scientific American’s daily and weekly podcasts. His freelance articles have appeared in magazines such as Astronomy, Audubon, Earth, Men’s Fitness, National Wildlife, Self, and Wildlife Conservation.
