“Dont know much.. biology”

“Back to school” reading in science and nature.  Four Fish by Paul Greenberg examines our historical relationship with the wild fish (salmon, tuna, bass, cod) that “dominate the modern seafood market.” The Disappearing Spoon by Sam Kean, against all odds,  captures the fun and fascination of chemistry.  The Coming Famine by Julian Crib warns of coming food shortages–likely to be a ‘talk-of-the town’ read.   The Greatest Show on Earth by Richard Dawkins (The God Delusion) attempts to demonstrate, once and for all, the truth of evolution (he is not kind to skeptics).  What Darwin Got Wrong by Jerry Fodor asks how new traits actually get passed on; The Plausibility of Life by Marc Kirschner offers an alternative explanation.
