Current to the end of 2008
Jeff from Bearcastle Blog is hosting the Science Book Challenge. He is part of a group of people who are working on a project for Book Notes on line. This challenge will become part of that project. Here is what he says:
Read three nonfiction books this year related to the theme "Living a Rational Life", broadly construed. Each book should have something to do with science, how science operates, or science's relationship with its surrounding culture. The books might be popularizations of science, they might be history, they might be biography, they might be anthologies.
After you've read it, write a short note about the book; 500 words would suffice. What goes in the note? The things you would tell a friend if you wanted to convince said friend to read it, too. Naturally, you can read some of the existing Book Notes for ideas.
Don't worry if you find that you've read a book someone else has also read; we welcome multiple notes on one title.
