Best Science Books 2008: Christian Science Monitor

Decent list:

  • The Telephone Gambit: Chasing Alexander Graham Bell's Secret by Seth Shulman

  • Overtreated: Why Too Much Medicine Is Making Us Sicker and Poorer by Shannon Brownlee

  • In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto by Michael Pollan

  • The Numerati by Stephen Baker

Friedman's Hot, Flat and Crowded and Gladwell's Outliers are two marginal science books that seem to be getting a lot of mentions.

(Thanks for Mita for pointing me to this site!)
