Usako (bbmeltdown) | 1341 comments What type of science books would you define as acceptable for this task? Amazon.com isn't too clear since when I click on Science books pulls social sciences, math and philosophy books. Hmm.

Even this one was listed: The Little SAS(R) Book, A Primer, Third Edition

Anyone have suggestions?

El Just a few ideas...


Carl Sagan (except Contact as that is actually fiction, not non-fiction).
Stephen W. Hawking
Jane Goodall
Stephen Jay Gould
Charles Darwin
Richard Dawkins
Albert Einstein

You could find a book about something that you're interested in... say you're interested in electricity - there are some good books about Tesla out there, etc.

Eve..."


I recently read The World Without Us which discusses what would happen to the planet if humans were to disappear tomorrow. Its truly fascinating and I actually ranked it as one of my favorite books of the year. I highly recommend it if you are looking for a book for this category.

Haha, I'm a big fan also. I'm trying to decide if I want to read her for this task or for the superhero task as she's been a longtime hero of mine.
