Canadian born and South African raised, Thea Beckman AKA Wander Woman Thea, is an experienced travel, food, and wine writer and (amateur) photographer with a devastating love of all of the above. She is a travel bug, a bookworm, and mildly alarmed by how many arthropods she can be at once. When she’s not writing for a living and for pleasure, she enjoys bird-watching, reading, drinking wine, cooking, and SHORT walks on the beach because the summer southeasterly winds in Cape Town are a real bitch. Thea is the author of the book β€œWhy? Because Science!” Facebook @WanderWomanThea Instagram @wander_woman_thea

  1. Wahoo! It is live on Amazon UK (just bought and downloaded). It is rare I turn down a freebie – but in this case I wanted a “verified purchase” to add credibility to a review (to follow).


      1. Thea – Amazon have just rejected my review – after reading their guidelines I have no idea why (and the rejection email does not allow for conversation or reply. Can you help please?

        Here is what I wrote (and got rejected):

        from Amazon Customer on 23 November 2017

        Science as I wish I had been taught at school! Brilliant!

        I have the honour of being the very first paying customer for this amazing book (apparently). And I AM honoured!!

        I bumped into Thea in the blog community, and was taken aback by her combination of earthy humour and wide expansive knowledge. I don’t “learn” when I read about science as described by Thea – I laugh a lot and realise when I stop laughing that I know so much more than I did before. And have no idea how that happens!

        So what do I get for her hard-earned money? About three hours of reading (according to my Fire). However, I intend to make this book last longer by reading slower (just so I can savour the fun much more). In that three (or more) hours, I get 40 chapters of science and belly-laugh laughter AND an epilogue AND a “behind the scenes”. But most of all I know I am going to have hours of laughter (and then realise I know a whole heap more than I ever thought I could). Here’s is why …

        From “The Boring Stuff”: “While every precaution has been taken to ensure that the information presented herein is accurate (and accurate at the time of publishing) the author is only human and shit happens.” πŸ™‚

        From “The Grand Introduction”: “Science provides a virtually inexhaustible supply of conversational topics that, if discussed with a dash of knowledge, are guaranteed to make you more appealing to the opposite sex, or the same sex because, you know, homosexuality is perfectly normal.”

        I wanted you read this review as my very own and very proud “verified purchase” review. Because you will not waste your money – in fact you will probably become a big a fan as I am, once you read this “Little Book of Bedtime Science That Unravels Life, The Universe, and The Occasional Pair of Underpants”.

        I hope you buy it – I did! And I am chuckling already!!


      2. Oh wow! I’m so happy I got to read that… that’s truly special! Thank you so much for that Paul. There are three possibilities here:
        1. You swore – said “shit” – perhaps their way of protecting authors from getting trolled.
        2. It’s very long – as much as I appreciate every word, perhaps they don’t like more than a paragraphy
        3. It’s VERY flattering – perhaps too much for an “unbiased” review – and while I’d love nothing more than to have it where everyone can see it, they might think I paid you to be so flattering, hahaha!

        Perhaps shorten it and remove “shit” and see if it flies.

        Once again, thank you so much – I’m so glad you are the very first because now you are the most memorable πŸ™‚
