About the Author

J ay Ingram has been the host of Discovery Channel Canada’s Daily Planet since it began in 1995. At the time, it was the only hour-long, prime-time daily science show in the world. Prior to joining Discovery, Jay hosted CBC Radio’s national science show, Quirks and Quarks, from 1979 to 1992. During that time he won two ACTRA awards, one for best host, and several Canadian Science Writers’ awards. He wrote and hosted two CBC Radio documentary series and short radio and television science stories for a variety of programs. He was contributing editor to Owl magazine for ten years, and wrote a weekly science column in the Toronto Star for twelve. Jay has also written eleven bestselling books, including The Daily Planet Book of Cool Ideas.

In 2009, Jay was made a member of the Order of Canada for his contributions towards making complex science accessible to the public – and for his leadership of future generations of science journalists. He has received the Sandford Fleming Medal from the Royal Canadian Institute for his efforts to popularize science, the Royal Society’s McNeil Medal for the Public Awareness of Science, and the Michael Smith Award from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council. He is a Distinguished Alumnus of the University of Alberta and has received five honorary doctorates.

I purchased this book for my husband for his birthday. He watches the program all the time & was very excited he received the book for his birthday. He's reading every word, & sinking everything in. If you watch Daily Planet, this is the book for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My husband just loves it.

i was disappointed in this product.. I was so excited when I saw that it was available and when I opened it most of the pictures were blurry and poor quality. This is a Christmas gift for my husband that I couldn't find locally so I had to purchase it online.. next time I will go to a store so I can actually flip the pages.. being a book from Jay Ingram, I expected better quality.

I read the book a little at a time, absorbing each article. I find it quite interesting as I know it to be factual. I look forward each evening to reading a few more articles. It is the little things about which we would otherwise know nothing have light shed upon them, thus increasing our knowledge and understanding of the items being discussed and the people responsible for doing the research.
Sincerely,
Bill Powers

This book is quite big, but there is alot of reading involved if thats what you like. There isnt any facts like i thought there would be, mostly just inventions. The pictures are not very clear, they are bad quality. But there arent alot pictures.
