Description
 
Edmund Blair Bolles (ed). An accessible & riveting treasury of scientific literature that will fascinate anyone interested in learning more about the history & process of science. Marie Curie reminisces about her & her husband’s efforts to isolate the element radium. Herodotus observes the Nile Valley & concludes that it was once under water. Carl Sagan argues against assertions that aliens regularly visit Earth. The authors represented here include those best loved for their writing, such as Stephen Jay Gould, Rachel Carson, Richard Feynman, Primo Levi, & Charles Darwin. And the selections also span time & the scientific disciplines -- from Galileo & Johannes Kepler to John McPhee & Noam Chomsky. “An invaluable resource.”  “A joy to browse.”
