Dazzling illustrated poetry from the magical mind of Tim Minchin. This is his first ever book and features a foreword from Neil Gaiman.

A storm is brewing in the confines of a London dinner party. Small talk quickly descends into a verbal and intellectual battle between science and belief, as comedian Tim goes head to head with the mysterious fifth guest at the table - a hippy named Storm.

With stunning original artwork, Tim's sublime ranty beat-poem weaves through the world we live in, where alternative medicine is given credence and public funding, psychics have primetime TV exposure and people are happy with mystery rather than answers.

While Storm herself may not be converted, audiences from London to Sydney have been won over by Tim's lyrical wonders and the timely message of the piece in a society where science is attacked as the enemy of belief. STORM is the illustrated book born from the acclaimed internet sensation - the animation that has become an anthem for critical thinking worldwide, attracting over three million views. Now fully reimagined, STORM is a masterpiece that sparkles with beauty, wit, reason and rationality.

note. Besides, you gotta pick ya battles, and Jane showed no interest at all in hearing talk of placebo, cherry-picking, or false causal correlations. (In fact, I’ve learned the hard way over the years that most people don’t get off on logical fallacies like I do. Sigh.) So there was no confrontation. Nor, for that matter, was there anyone called Storm. And poor old Jane only talked about homeopathy; she was not the paragon of evidence-free thinking that her fictionalised self, Storm, was to

There are even ‘Not Magic’ t-shirts out there. And we always knew that Storm wasn’t done yet. How can it be, when the themes and message continue to be so relevant?

to sceptics argue with believers over dessert any more than Tim Minchin’s wife or his hosts do, this is the best possible version of that argument you can encounter. It is concise. It is well-said. It is wise. I loved it when I heard it first on Tim’s album Ready For This? I loved it again when I saw it animated on YouTube by DC Turner and Tracy King. And now it returns in a version with pages you can turn, and words printed on the pages so you can say them by yourself. Clever words filled with
