I'm going to go for something a little left-field:

Future Science: Essays from the Cutting Edge

Editor Max Brockman presents the work of some of today’s brightest and most innovative young researchers in this fascinating collection of writings that introduce the very latest theories and discoveries in science.

Future Science features eighteen young scientists, most of whom are presenting their work and ideas to a general audience for the first time.

I would love to discuss this book, I've just started it, but will wait on it if it is to be discussed.

Karen | 18 comments Rather by accident, I had read "On the Nature of the Universe" by Lucretius just a few months before I read "The Swerve," which added considerably to my understanding and enjoyment of Stephen Greenblatt's work. I highly recommend Lucretius to all you "Swerve" readers!!

Campbell (tartancrusader) I realise I'm a bit late to this particular party so I'll keep (what I think is) a cracking nomination to myself, until next month at least...
