I picked up this collection of essays with an interest in exploring current affairs pertaining to the scientific, the natural, the environmental, and so much more that was taking place in our world. After selecting one such essay, The Modern Moose by Amy Leach, to place on our discussion list for...

In these days of fake news and pseudoscience triumphant, it seems almost quaint to read actual science from real and accountable news sources, but it is still a worthy effort.

The usual mixed bag of two dozen science and nature essays. ***** five stars — Telescope Wars, by Kate Worth, which first published in Scientific American. Three big telescope projects with common goals around the world suffer because they cannot work together as a collective force, which would re...

Wonderfully curated collection of science writing by Amy Stewart, who chose pieces not just for the science but for the narrative as well.

Year after year this Best American series continues to rock whether the essays are about climate change's effect on native Greenlanders, mathematical theorems, or squabbling astronomers. Can't recommend this 2016 edition highly enough.

An excellent collection of essays, only one or two that I felt weren't worth including. There is a practical or social justice angle to many of them.

Great collection, may become a collector of the series. As a voracious reader of science articles, I was surprised by how many of these articles I had not yet read. Just False Gospel of AA / Perfect Nails, Poisoned Workers / Siege of Miami / The Really Big One Which meant 16 fresh new science arti...
