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.
- Strictly Bipolar by Darian Leader
- The Examined Life: How We Lose and Find Ourselves by Stephen Grosz
- How We Feel by Giovanni Frazzetto
- What Has Nature Ever Done For Us?: How Money Really Does Grow On Trees by Tony Juniper
- Churchill’s Bomb: A Hidden History of Science, War and Politics by Graham Farmelo
- Serving the Reich: The Struggle for the Soul of Physics under Hitler by Philip Ball
- Stuff Matters: The Strange Stories of the Marvellous Materials that Shape Our Man-made World by Mark Miodownik
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.
