It’s now just a week until The Geek Manifesto is finally published, and today, The Times (where I covered science for 11 years) has published three extracts in its Eureka science magazine (paywall).
The spreads look fantastic — I particularly love the illustrations by the very talented Nathalie Lees.
Eureka has chosen extracts from the chapters entitled “Geekonomics”, “Doing Science Justice” and “Placebo Politics”, which respectively deal with the impact of science on economics and growth, the criminal justice system, and health policy.
A reminder, too, that from tomorrow, you can download a whole chapter of The Geek Manifesto as a taster eBook. The chapter we’ve chosen appears in the book as “Policy-based Evidence”, and it’s about what science and evidence can bring to government policy-making.
