Best Science Books 2007: National Post

Another Canadian newspaper has published their list of holiday reading, this time the right wing National Post. I'm actually pleasantly surprised; it's a pretty good list with no evolution or global warming denialism in sight.

  • Einstein: His Life and Universe by Walter Isaacson
  • Von Braun: Dreamer of Space, Engineer of War by Michael J. Neufeld
  • Beneath My Feet: The Memoirs of George Mercer Dawson with Phil Jenkins (diaries of the first head of the Geological Survey of Canada)
  • Red Moon Rising: Sputnik and the Hidden Rivalries That Ignited the Space Age by Matthew Brzezinski
  • The Spiritual Brain: A Neuroscientist's Case for the Existence of the Soul by Mario Beauregard and Denyse O'Leary
  • The Brain That Changes Itself by Norman Doidge
  • Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain by Oliver Sacks

Ok, it's not perfect. The Spirtual Brain has been pretty widely debunked.

Via Locus.
