Darryl Cunningham’s book ‘Science Tales’ includes a great chapter on fracking. His clear narrative, graphic lines and photographic illustration explain complicated and controversial issues with deceptive ease and wit. He also explains controversies surrounding climate change, electro-convulsive therapy, the moon landing, the MMR vaccine, homeopathy, chiropractic, evolution and science denial.
