Excellent collection of science essays/journalism. Especially fascinating were the articles on the inventor of ecstasy (and his encyclopedia of homemade hallucinogens!), cooperative deal-making behavior in primates, indigenous groups fighting being kicked off conservation preserves, possible sociological stresses of successful longevity treatments, the surprisingly complex (and sometimes beneficial) ecology of bacteria we carry and how antibiotics may be warping that ecology, and Oliver Sacks on his personal and professional relationship with Francis Crick.
