Hollywood Science
January 16, 2008
Have you ever watched a movie that interprets science so poorly that you leave the film shaking the head? You're not alone. Sidney Perkowitz has tackled this subject in his book Hollywood Science (Movies, Science, and the End of the World). Perkowitz, a scientist and film enthusiast, looks at more than 100 movies from early film history to the blockbusters of today. In this week's show, Perkowitz discusses his book.

If you would like more information, visit Perkowitz's site or Columbia University Press.
