Every year for the last bunch of years I’ve been linking to and posting all the “year’s best sciencey books” lists that I can find around the web in various media outlets.
From the beginning it’s been a pretty popular service so I’m happy to continue it. The previous posts for all the 2013 lists are here.
- The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon by Brad Stone
- Hatching Twitter: A True Story of Money, Power, Friendship, and Betrayal by Nick Bilton
- The New Digital Age: Reshaping the Future of People, Nations and Business by Eric Schmidt, Jared Cohen
- Dogfight: How Apple and Google Went to War to Start a Revolution by Fred Vogelstein
- An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth: What Going to Space Taught Me About Ingenuity, Determination, and Being Prepared for Anything by Chris Hadfield
- Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident, and the Illusion of Safety by Eric Schlosser
- Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital by Sheri Fink
I'm always looking for recommendations and notifications of book lists as they appear in various media outlets. If you see one that I haven't covered, please let me know at jdupuis at yorku dot ca or in the comments.
And if you wish to support my humble list-making efforts, run on over to Amazon, take a look at Quiet or Steve Jobs or The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks or maybe even something else from the today's list.
