Whether this collection truly represents the best science and nature writing of 2010 or not, I couldn't say, but I certainly can say that it's an interesting, generally high-quality collection of articles and essays on a variety of topics, from black-market kidney sales to same-sex albatross couples to the importance of cleaning up space junk. It is skewed a fair bit towards biology, medicine, and the environment, with a low proportion of hard science pieces, but that's not a complaint, merely an observation. And I can also say that I'm kicking myself for only just now discovering this series and am considering going back and picking up the volumes from earlier years. ( )

An interesting collection of essays. Several made me want to do some more research on their topics. ( )
