Aquí tenéis la descripción del libro:
This page-turning, fun and accessible book by Henry Gee, a senior editor at Nature, gives readers a behind-the-scenes look at the science behind the magic in J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy classics THE HOBBIT and The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Learn how dragons breathe fire, the hidden high-tech of the elves, how orcs reproduce, why seeing-stones work, whether balrogs have wings, and much much more about the magic found throughout Middle Earth. Gee’s writing style is accessible and delightful, and he makes a great case that «Tolkien’s own worldview was closer to the true spirit of science than that held by many who propose to promote the public understanding of science.
