A couple of weeks ago the NY Times released it's 100 Notable Books of the Year online, considerably ahead of when it will appear in print in the December 3rd Holiday Books issue.
So, The New York Times is science-friendly, right? You bet! Guess how many of the notable books are science-related? Ten? Five? Actually, three. Disappointing to say the least. I hope the Science Times section does a proper list in the coming weeks.
Here's the three:
- Arsenals of Folly: The Making of the Nuclear Arms Race by Richard Rhodes
- How Doctors Think by Jerome Groopman.
- The Invisible Cure: Africa, the West, and the Fight Against AIDS by Helen Epstein
