A analogy with many strong ideas, yet quite boring for "the best American science writing". But science isn't that interesting anyways. Some of the ideas are quite appealing to me such as what life would be like if humans did not exist, or what makes people gay, etc. Many of the ideas are very controversial. I may not be very religious, but the heading, "Is God an Accident" just struck me hard. Interesting, yet maybe offensive. The writers talk about their beliefs and ideas from their own experiences. It is interesting to hear their biases. I, myself had many ideas about these topics. But I still can't help for start falling asleep every morning in the subway as i open the book. Preferably for people who enjoys science.
