platypuses hit the US

Officially, the US edition of my new book, The birds, the bees, and the platypuses, is due to hit the shops on Monday (July 14), but I just checked and found out that amazon.com have it in stock already.

They sell it for $ 33 with free delivery, so get one now, and one for your auntie, one for your friend ...

Here's the fantastic blurb again, for those who haven't seen it yet:

Michael Gross has been writing about science full time for the last eight years and as a night time hobby for the previous seven. From his treasure troves, he now presents his favourite science stories from these 15 years. What are the attractions that make him revisit a topic or reread an article again and again? Often, it’s the sheer craziness of wildly unexpected findings or grotesquely oversized challenges. In other stories, there is a sexy element or a an unexpected insight into the human condition. And sometimes, when reporting new and future technologies, the author just can’t help thinking: “cooooooool!” So here are more than 60 crazy, sexy and cool science stories for you to enjoy.
