SHAUN HENDY WITH KIM HILL
New Zealand

Get off the Grass is a brilliant collaboration between Shaun Hendy and the late Sir Paul Callaghan taking readers on an intellectual adventure, from David Ricardo and Adam Smith, to economic geography and the science of complex networks. The message is clear, 'get off the grass' and learn to live off knowledge rather than nature.

Shaun talks with Kim Hill about why we need to start taking science seriously and seeing ourselves as people of knowledge, not just of the land.

Shaun Hendy is a Professor of Computational Physics at Victoria University of Wellington and is an Industry and Outreach Fellow at Industrial Research Ltd.

In 2012 he won the Callaghan Medal and Prime Ministers' Science Communication Prize.
