Richj's Secret Santa is timspalding. Help timspalding pick the right book.
WeeTurtle: I see some nature and poetry in there, which makes me think of Don McKay, who has a few books and won the Griffin Poetry prize in 2007 in the Canadian list with "Strike/Slip." I read "Vis a' Vis" in University. (Tue, 04 Dec 2018 04:17:21 -0500)
WeeTurtle: Possibly Tyson's book "Astrophysics for People in a Hurry" which I think falls into physics for the non-math set. (Tue, 04 Dec 2018 04:19:08 -0500)
bragan: For evolution, I might suggest Your Inner Fish by Neil Shubin, Why Evolution is True by Jerry A. Coyne, Climbing Mount Improbable by Richard Dawkins, or just about any essay collection by Stephen Jay Gould.
For physics, maybe Neutrino Hunters by Ray Jayawardhana (Tue, 04 Dec 2018 04:48:21 -0500)
pantsu: Seconding the Stephen Jay Gould rec. His essay compilations are great. (Thu, 06 Dec 2018 17:08:37 -0500)
Tropical-Library: Altered Carbon by Richard Morgan, or A id for Alibi by Sue Grafton (Thu, 06 Dec 2018 19:33:42 -0500)
thebookmagpie: Any of Carlo Rovelli's books would suit for the physics for people who don't have great maths skills. (Fri, 07 Dec 2018 09:01:50 -0500)
