초록:

Award-winning science journalist Angier takes us on a "guided twirligig through the scientific canon." She draws on conversations with hundreds of the world's top scientists, and her own work as a reporter for the New York Times, to create an entertaining guide to scientific literacy--a joyride through the major scientific disciplines: physics, chemistry, biology, geology, and astronomy. It's for anyone who wants to understand the great issues of our time--from stem cells and bird flu to evolution and global warming. It's also one of those rare books that reignites our childhood delight in figuring out how things work: we learn what's actually happening when our ice cream melts or our coffee gets cold, what our liver cells do when we eat a caramel, how the horse shows evolution at work, and that we really are all made of stardust.--From publisher description.

Flawed but Good

by dcornwall (WorldCat 사용자가 게시함 2010-05-18) 좋음 퍼머링크

Overall, this is a good layman's introduction to the major concepts of the primary sciences - physics, chemistry, biology and astronomy. The book has a bibliography for further reading and the author's passion for her subject is obvious.

The main weakness of the book is the overabundance of...
