Publisher's Summary

Explore the real science behind the Cartoon Network phenomenon Rick and Morty-one of television's most irreverent, whip-smart, and darkly hilarious shows - and discover how close we are to Rick's many experiments becoming a reality.

Adult Swim's Rick and Morty is one of the smartest (and most insane) shows on television. Genius alcoholic Rick Sanchez and his hapless grandson Morty have explored everything from particle physics to human augmentation and much more in their intergalactic adventures through the multiverse. With biting humor and plenty of nihilism, Rick and Morty employs cutting-edge scientific theories in every episode. But, outside of Rick's garage laboratory, what are these theories truly about and what can they teach us about ourselves?

Blending biology, chemistry, and physics basics with accessible - and witty-prose, The Science of Rick and Morty equips you with the scientific foundation to thoroughly understand Rick's experiments from the show, such as how we can use dark matter and energy, just what is intelligence hacking, and whether or not you can really control a cockroach's nervous system with your tongue. Perfect for longtime and new fans of the show, this is the ultimate segue into discovering more about our complicated and fascinating universe.

Rick and Morty is a hysterical show.

This show is funny, witty and smart. It's for intelligent Humans. The author really did go in depth into the science. I dont believe all of it, however this was a great and complex look into the science of rick and morty. Genius cartoon indeed.

Brilliant!!

A lot of science!! Matt Brady explains the science behind the most awesome sci-fi show to date! Rick and Morty, he goes from shrinking people to reality itself, this book is brilliantly filled with pop culture references and dedicated completely in to science, so if you like science and pop culture definitely pick it up! Is a beyond interesting read!

Some good science in here?

A lot of it is obvious and some of it is unnecessary posturing. To clarify - I like Rick and Morty and I LUUURVE Science, especially the weird stuff. But I thought there was unnecessary posturing in this book/recording (if you don’t believe in evolution, are you watching Rick and Morty at all? No you’re not. So it’s an unnecessary speech/declaration of principles on the part of the author - I feel like it’s an illegitimate declaration of self importance). I do appreciate the details I don’t know - like the bit about differences in evolution theory amongst worlds regarding favoring prevalence of the the most useful feature vs an average of the most common feature. I love Rick and Morty. I love theoretical, particle and classical physics. I love thermodynamics. I give this book a C-
