The 103 series brings you concepts, discoveries, paradoxes, journeys, mysteries and stuff from fields as diverse as science, travel, sports and history. Including the profound and the playful, the books take a look at subjects with a fresh and sometimes, whimsical eye. The lucid language makes complex ideas accessible, so that you will want to read the books from cover to cover and also dip into them for years to come.
And why 103? Because it's substantial and interestingly random-- just like these books!
