Why?: What Makes Us Curious

Artwork

Astrophysicist and bestselling author Mario Livio describes cutting-edge research in psychology and neuroscience in an exploration of the origin and mechanisms of human curiosity. His latest book, "Why?" weaves current findings with fascinating stories of such paragons of curiosity as inventor Leonardo da Vinci and physicist Richard Feynman, alongside interviews with physicist Fabiola Gianotti, astrophysicist/rock guitarist Brian May, linguist Noam Chomsky, and others who weigh in on what drove them to be at the top of their fields.
