Simon Han

“When I was eight we moved from Houston to Dallas and I spent my friendless summer before school reading. My tastes leaned toward those gimmicky science books with pop-up pages and 3D glasses that were always about stuff like tornadoes and dinosaurs and sharks. But my parents were also electrical engineers and encouraged me to love the actual science. I think their voices were in my head when I wrote this book (‘You should appreciate them’).”
