If you’re New Year’s resolution is to read more books, then check out the latest additions to my bulging shelves, order them quickly on Amazon and you may just have them in time to fulfill that New Year’s resolution:
Experimental heart – a racy read set in the world of pipettors and gene splicing, a first novel by Jennifer Rohn. creator of LabLit.com who blogs on Nature Network at Mind the Gap. Richard Grant has a more substantial review of Dr Rohn’s book under the title: I’m a professional cynic but my heart’s not in it.
Mars 3-D by Jim Bell – does what it says on the tin, super 3D images of the Red Planet with a free set of red-green spectacles, my kids were very impressed.
Hubble – Imaging space and time – the most cosmic coffee table book you could ever wish for from National Geographic
The Science Book – also from NG, this mighty tome tells you “everything you need to know about the world and how it works, would make a fantastic gift for a homeschooler.
Also for review this week is yet more cosmic stuff this time on DVD: “The Universe” (they don’t for small-scale names these days, do they?) Complete season 2 of the History Television Network rroduction (five DVDs)
