review The Best American Science Writing 2006 103 Ennis Overbye Jonathan Weiner and Richard Preston among others represent the full spectrum of scien. It s popular science writing to be sure if you peruse the New York Times or Scientific American regularly then you may have already seen some of these articlesThe range is nice one subject that was completely new to me was the value of autopsies in medical diagnosis Despite all the new scanning technologies the best way to really know the cause of death is still to cut people up it s not done nearly as often as it was 40 years but it s still very useful for finding diagnostic errors and understanding the causes of our mortality That s the argument added to this is a graphic description of an actual autopsy that made me stop and ponder the slim margin of an error separating an active life from a de animated corpse

review The Best American Science Writing 2006 103 Tific inuiry proving once again that good science writing is evidently plentiful American Scientist. The book did not disappoint Every single one of the articles was entertaining and thought provoking Your Move by Tom Mueller was about a computer program that plays chess that often uses strategies that surprise even its programmers Alan Weisman s article entitled Earth Without People reminds one of how fleeting human existence is in the grand scheme of things and how uickly it could be erased W Wyatt Gibbs provides a much needed counter point to the obesity epidemic that many claim is sweeping the nation with his article Obesity An Epic Overblown Neil Swidey examines the nature versus nurture argument in regards to homosexuality in his article What Makes People Gay Though it seems natural for me to assume that homosexuality is genetic I also felt that if it was a genetic trait then it wouldn t be beneficial to survival because homosexuals could not reproduce Swidley examines this uestion in depthIn The Coming Death Shortage Charles C Mann discuss the potential problems that lengthening the average life of a human being will cause H Allen Orr provides a scientific critiue of Intelligent Design that is sorely needed in today s society Unfortunately he does make the point that as 80% of Americans believe that God guided our creation and progression that having come this far on faith alone does Creationism really need ID Paul Bloom provides us with a window into why we assume a designer with his article Is God an Accident Bloom posits that our belief in God is related to the belief that our mind is separate from our body which he feels is innate within children Robert Provine s article on Yawning was fun and definitely yawn invoking not from boredom but from yawn contagion and I also really enjoyed Richard Preston s description of the little world contained in the canopies of Redwood TreesRemarkably enough I left uite a few articles out of the above review The rest of the articles were also good however the ones mentioned above were ones that really got me thinking I have several good leads on what books I will read next and I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in some good science reading This book provides a nice breadth that I think includes something for everyone I believe that The Best American Science Writing is a series I will have to make sure to read each year

I read this book because I wanted to see what kinds of stories my favorite person in the world Atul Gawande liked to read The answer is ones that are worse than the ones he writes There were some good gems in here namely the ones about literary Darwinism yawning and the bionic ear and Bolero but mostly underreported think pieces that frankly pale in comparison to Gawande s own work
