Recommended for: people who like science, people who appreciate good writing
Read in April, 2009

Angier's prose is ridiculously lovely. She really plays with the language, but it's always still very clear. I love science and I love good writing, and this is an excellent example of the best of both.

James I read this book after listening to an interview with the author. I found it to be fascinating.

Get "Woman: an Intimate Geography" for Kat. She'll like it. You may like it too; Jon's too squeamish for something like that, but it's the first book of hers I read and I love it.
