"This year's selections in The Best American Science and Nature Writing take on an array of topics that matter, all united by passionate writing. Natalie Angier defends agnosticism in a year dominated by discussions of faith, and Jenny Everett writes about the "invisible but intense" process of human growth, her little brother, and the newly approved drug Humatrope. Oliver Sacks explores the realms of consciousness, Frederick Crews traces the staying power of the Rorschach personality test, and William Speed Weed casts a gimlet eye on the wash of science claims encountered by a single man in a single day."--BOOK JACKET

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
[This] collection, full of writing that makes us feel, as Natalie Angier says, that we "have learned something and fallen in love all at once." Here is Malcolm Gladwell on the subversive nonscience involved in standardized testing, Gordon Grice on the recent incursion of mountain lions into our suburbs, and Blaine Harden on how a gritty, superheavy mud from the Congo called coltan helps power the new economy. Barbara Ehrenreich gives a stinging indictment of the cancer establishment's endorsement of pink ribbons over the medical realities of being a cancer patient, and Gary Greenberg teases out the confounding - and ethically and emotionally fraught - science behind what we call brain death. Burkhard Bilger wonders why westerners happily eat catfish and frog's legs but continue to balk at braised possum and fried mink, and Eric Schlosser uncovers the dark side of the science involved in making McDonald's French fries taste so good. In two especially timely pieces, Dennis Overbye explores the rise and fall of Islamic science, and Anne Matthews, in an essay on the ecology of Manhattan, paints a haunting picture of still-warm bodies of songbirds littering the streets of Wall Street before dawn. These writers and many more give us the very best, very newest science and nature writing. As Natalie Angier writes, "The universe is expanding. May our minds follow suit." -Dust jacket
