  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Whitney Cowling | 8/27/2013

    " This book contains several essays about current scientific thought and research. Though some of the material was a little over my head, most of the essays were very thought provoking and exciting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by BAKU | 1/9/2013

    " Sean Carroll's article is the best. ( I hope they'll find the Higgs boson, so everything'll change and I don't have to read his big book about spacetime geometery ) ~ "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ann | 11/2/2012

    " last chapter is the one to read-- talks about knowledge and cross-disciplinary and silo-breaking ways to broaden realms of knowable/workable information rather than become isolated by narrowness/specialization. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kurt Wollenberg | 5/14/2012

    " Some very thought-provoking essays about cosmology and neurobiology. The more philosophical essays left me cold. "
