Well, the story about ducks and how they regulate the temperature in their feet was fab. So were the parts about the Arctic Ocean, the Fram, the molecular structures of sugar and salt, and Brownian motion.
It is just me or are her choice of anecdotes getting a little less focused? I mean, I don't mind that much, but some of the trains of thought seem a little forced.
Still, this was a hugely enjoyable chapter just for the ducks alone.
