really liked it
Recommended for: lovers of wired, lovers of science, lovers

Out of maybe twenty essays, at least ten were SO worth reading and totally accessible (profiles of scientists = NOT really science, still makes me seem smart!) I definitely had to skim three essays that were prodigiously footnoted and talked about physics or some such nonsense, but the rest (mostly from The New Yorker or The New York Times Magazine) were legit. I'm definitely planning on reading the rest of the series - it's a little embarrassing to bust out science facts from 2000.
