Woman : an intimate geography by Natalie Angier( Book )
46 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 2,494 libraries worldwide
Angier takes the reader on a mesmerizing tour of female anatomy and physiology. She shows how cultural biases have influenced research and consequently lead to dubious conclusions about "female nature." An essential read for anyone interested in how biology affects who we are-as women, as men, and as human beings
The beauty of the beastly : new views on the nature of life by Natalie Angier( Book )
13 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and Dutch and held by 1,100 libraries worldwide
""The beauty of the natural world lies in the details, and most of those details are not the stuff of calendar art," Natalie Angier writes in the introduction to The Beauty of the Beastly. "I have made it a kind of hobby, almost a mission, to write about organisms that many people find repugnant: spiders, scorpions, parasites, worms, rattlesnakes, dung beetles, hyenas. I have done so out of a perverse preference for subjects that other writers generally have ignored, and because I hope to inspire in readers an appreciation for diversity, for imagination, for the twisted, webbed, infinite possibility of the natural world. Every single story that nature tells is gorgeous."" "She has taken pains to learn her science from the molecule up, finding "the very pulse of the machine" in everything from the supple structure of DNA to the erotic ways of barn swallows, queen bees, and the endangered, otherworldly primate called the aye-aye. Angier knows all that scientists know - and sometimes more - about the power of symmetry in sexual relations, about the brutal courting habits of dolphins, about the grand deceit of orchids, about the impact of female and male preference on evolution. She knows how scientists go about their work, and she describes their ways, their visions, and their arguments."--Jacket
Natural obsessions : the search for the oncogene by Natalie Angier( Book )
8 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and French and held by 729 libraries worldwide
"Surprise is what scientists live for," writes Lewis Thomas in the Forward to this thrilling narrative of scientific discovery. "The very best ones revel in surprise, dance in the presence of astonishment." NATURAL OBSESSIONS describes in fascinating detail how some of the best young scientists in the world today explore the advanced reaches of molecular biology, probing for the nature of the human cell and for the oncogenes that control cancer. NATURAL OBSESSIONS is as dramatic in its events as those narrated in THE DOUBLE HELIX, as absorbing in its mental explorations as THE SOUL OF A NEW MACHINE. It is also as up to date as a book about a rapidly exfoliating field can be. The actors are brilliant scientists from a dozen nations. The principal scene is Robert Weinberg's laboratory at the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research in Cambridge, MA. The stakes are a cure for cancer--or for some cancers. During the many months that Natalie Angier was given the freedom of the corridors at Michael Wigler's Cold Spring Harbor laboratory and at Weinberg's lab, half a dozen major accomplishments emerged from their work--the most recent of which was to clone the oncogene for retinoblastoma, a dreadful disease of the eye in children. Both labs broke through into new regions of surprise, moving ever closer to the roots of cancer and the dark heart of the human cell. NATURAL OBSESSIONS is like few other books in that it deals not merely with the end product of investigative science--results--but with the process of scientific inquiry, how science gets done. To attain that end, failure helps as much as success; a scrupulously documented failure advances scientific knowledge immensely, though not necessarily the morale or the fortunes of the scientists whose failure advances knowledge. This book is full of the intoxication of success, the ruefulness of failure, but, above all, what Wordsworth called, "the impassioned look upon the face of science."
The canon : [a whirligig tour of the beautiful basics of science] by Natalie Angier( Sound Recording )
17 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 401 libraries worldwide
Most of the profound questions we will explore in our lives--evolution, global warming, stem cells--have to do with science. So do a lot of everyday things, like our ice cream melting and our coffee getting cold and our vacuum cleaner running (or not). What does our liver do when we eat a caramel? How does the horse demonstrate evolution at work? Are we really made of stardust? (Yes, we are.) In The Canon, Lewis Thomas meets Lewis Carroll in a book destined to become a modern classic--because it quenches our curiosity, sparks our interest in the world around us, reignites our childhood delight in discovering how things work, and instantly makes us smarter

Frau : eine intime Geographie des weiblichen Körpers by Natalie Angier( Book )
2 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in German and held by 45 libraries worldwide
Ein kluges, ein provokantes Buch über den weiblichen Körper - seine Anatomie, sein Empfinden, seine Evolution und seine Lust - und über das Frausein heute, großartig recherchiert, frech und undogmatisch geschrieben, selbstbewusst, sinnlich und grenzenlos. Die Pulitzer-Preisträgerin Natalie Angier stellt eine schier unerschöpfliche Palette an Erkenntnissen zusammen und verwirft dabei reihenweise die festgefahrenen Vorstellungen über das, was frau ist oder sein sollte. Neben seiner Wissenfülle besticht dieses Buch vor allem durch die brilliante Eloquenz und den feinsinnigen Humor der Autorin. Selten wird Wissen so spannend und unterhaltsam vermittelt wie hier. Natalie Angier arbeitet als Wissenschaftsjournalistin für die New York Times. Für ihre publizistische Tätigkeit ist sie mehrfach ausgezeichnet worden, unter anderem mit dem Pulitzerpreis
