The Science of The Big Bang Theory: The Ultimate Dissection of TV's Favorite Sitcom
The geeks will inherit the earth.



With well over two hundred episodes and a dozen seasons, The Big Bang Theory is one of America’s favorite television series, bringing a new class of character to mainstream television: the science nerd.



In spite of its evident popularity and influence in shaping public attitudes to science and scientists, there are relatively few books that explore the show’s culture and social dimension. The Science of The Big Bang Theory looks behind the comedy scenes and scripts of this long-running and successful TV show to explore topics such as:



  • The Bachelor Party Corrosion and Archimedes

  • The Valentino Submergence: Fun with Flags

  • The Dumpling Decoupling: Sheldon and Doctor Who

  • The Mystery Date Observation: The Unlikely Dating Habits of Eggheads

  • And More!



  • This book is a light-hearted science companion to TV's The Big Bang Theory, providing you with just the kind of dissection of the science and culture you’d need to understand “math, science, history, unraveling the mysteries, that all started with the big bang! Hey!”

    2020 Moon Calendar Card (40 pack): Lunar Phases, Eclipses, and More!
    See every beautiful moon of 2020 with Kim Long’s classic and handy moon calendar card

    This is the quintessential moon calendar—attractive on the front, informative on the back. When Kim Long first designed it in 1982, little did he know that it would go on to be released in yearly editions for the next thirty-seven years (so far)! This sturdy visual reference card fits in just about anywhere—especially stores serving children, educators, science buffs, stargazers, gardeners, or fishers and hunters (who gauge high tides and bright nights by the Moon). A counter display—and suggested retail price of $2.50—make it perfect for an impulse option at the register!
    • Hang it on your wall, by your desk, or in your garden shed.
    • Know the exact time of every full moon, new moon, and eclipse.
    • See the back for more details, including apogees and perigees!

    Hawking

    Following their New York Times-bestselling graphic novel Feynman, Jim Ottaviani and Leland Myrick deliver a gripping biography of Stephen Hawking, one of the most important scientists of our time.

    From his early days at the St Albans School and Oxford, Stephen Hawking’s brilliance and good humor were obvious to everyone he met. A lively and popular young man, it’s no surprise that he would later rise to celebrity status.

    At twenty-one he was diagnosed with ALS, a degenerative neuromuscular disease. Though the disease weakened his muscles and limited his ability to move and speak, it did nothing to limit his mind. He went on to do groundbreaking work in cosmology and theoretical physics for decades after being told he had only a few years to live. He brought his intimate understanding of the universe to the public in his 1988 bestseller, A Brief History of Time. Soon after, he added pop-culture icon to his accomplishments by playing himself on shows like Star Trek, The Simpsons, and The Big Bang Theory, and becoming an outspoken advocate for disability rights.

    In Hawking, writer Jim Ottaviani and artist Leland Myrick have crafted an intricate portrait of the great thinker, the public figure, and the man behind both identities.
