Cover image: Cool Stuff and How it Works book

Hello! I'm Chris Woodford and I write about science and technology for adults and children.

The books I've written, co-written, or contributed to have sold over four million copies, been translated into over 20 languages, and won or been shortlisted for around 40 awards.

I have an M.A. in Natural Sciences from Cambridge University, where I specialized in physics and experimental psychology, and I studied advertising and design with legendary creative guru John Gillard at The School of Communication Arts in London.

I also run the science education website Explain that Stuff, which serves up over 1.6 million pages a month to around 800,000 readers.
