The end of summer approaches and in a few weeks all the schools and universities will have started up, and with it all the beach books will be put away in favour of textbooks. So I’m interested in finding out about what science books people read over the summer.
I have often reviewed books here as part of my blog, and for this entry, I provide an overview of those books. What topic do you prefer? Do you identify as a “green” person who prides themselves on being environmentally friendly? Check out Gaia: A New Look at Life on Earth by James Lovelock.
Or perhaps you, like me, are obsessed with what the marriage of ancient DNA and genetic engineering can mean for bringing back extinct species. Then have a read of Beth Shapiro’s book How to Clone a Mammoth.
Are you more philosophically inclined? Get the low down on the Philosophy of Science. Are you a sceptic in need of food for thought- judge the evidence for yourself on The Sense of Being Stared At by Rupert Sheldrake.
Over to you now- what was the last science book you read? What non-fiction book demanded your attention on the beach?
