Best Science Books 2013: The Guardian

Jan 04 2014 Published by under best science books 2013, science books

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.

This time it's The Guardian Psychology books of the year – review, Science books of the year – review.

  • 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.

I am picking up most of my lists from Largehearted Boy. The summary post for 2012 books is here and all the posts for 2012 can be found here.

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.
