Summary

''Natalie Angier takes us on a whirligig tour of the scientific canon. She draws on conversations with hundreds of the world's top scientists and her own work as a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter for the New York Times to create an entertaining guide to scientific literacy. The Canon is vital reading for anyone who wants to understand the great issues of our time - from stem cells and bird flu to evolution and global warming.''--BOOK JACKET.
