Dec 05 2018 Published by under best science books 2018, science books

I'm back! It's been a bit of a blog hiatus, but I'm back! And picking up with the best science books where I left off!

As you all have no doubt noticed over the years, I love highlighting the best science books every year via the various end of year lists that newspapers, web sites, etc. publish. I've done it so far in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, href="http://confessions.scientopia.org/category/best-science-books-2016/">2016, and 2017.

And here we are in 2018!

As in previous years, my definition of "science books" is pretty inclusive, including books on technology, engineering, nature, the environment, science policy, public health, history & philosophy of science, geek culture and whatever else seems to be relevant in my opinion.

Today's list is The Best Science Books of 2018 recommended by Barbara Kiser.

  • Lost in Math: How Beauty Leads Physics Astray by Sabine Hossenfelder
  • The Tangled Tree: A Radical New History of Life by David Quammen
  • Chasing New Horizons: Inside the Epic First Mission to Pluto by Alan Stern & David Grinspoon
  • The Biological Mind: How Brain, Body, and Environment Collaborate to Make Us Who We Are by Alan Jasanoff
  • A Lab of One’s Own: Science and Suffrage in the First World War by Patricia Fara

Most of the lists I use are sourced via the Largehearted Boy master list.
