This review is from: A Random Walk in Science (Paperback)I first came across this book in the library at university and was instantly hooked. It is essentailly a collection of essays, articles, jokes, papers and assorted other pieces of writing about science and how it fits into society. It gives an insight into the thought behind science and the way the people we learn about in science courses really thought and felt.
Many of the items also provoke thought and questioning, how might our perceptions of reality be changed by the changes science makes to our lives? How might we ourselves be viewed by some alien observer?
