  1. Hi Mr Philip Yaffe
    I am a science teacher in a secondary school in Singapore and I chance upon your book “Science for the concerned citizen: What you don’t know CAN hurt you”. I would like to get a copy of the book but it is not even in amazon.com, let alone any other book sites. I would actually like to start a programme for parents and other stakeholders on science for the community … you know, hopefully when they see the dynamics of learning science, beyond regurgitating facts, then perhaps, children could see learning science differently.
    Appreciate it if you could let me know of how I could get hold of a copy.
    Thank you and best regards
