The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2016

Science writers get into the game with all kinds of noble, high-minded ambitions. We want to educate. To enlighten," notes guest editor Amy Stewart in her introduction to The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2016 . "But at the end of the day, we're all writers . . . We're here to play for the folks." The writers in this anthology brought us the year's highest notes in the genre. From a Pulitzer Prize-winning essay on the earthquake that could decimate the Pacific Northwest to the astonishing work of investigative journalism that transformed the nail salon industry, this is a collection of hard-hitting and beautifully composed writing on the wonders, dangers, and oddities of scientific innovation and our natural world. The Best American Science and Nature Writing 2016 includes Kathryn Schulz, Sarah Maslin Nir, Charles C. Mann, Oliver Sacks, Elizabeth Kolbert, Gretel Ehrlich, and others Amy Stewart, guest editor, is the award-winning author of seven books, including her acclaimed Kopp Sisters novels and the bestsellers The Drunken Botanist and Wicked Plants. She and her husband live in Eureka, California, where they own a bookstore called Eureka Books. Tim Folger, series editor, is a contributing editor at Discover and writes about science for several magazines. He lives in Gallup, New Mexico.
Rezension
BASNW 2014 : "[A] thought provoking, perspective shifting edition of a consistently strong series." - Publishers Weekly " The book is filled with excellent, thoughtful articles...Engaging and thought-provoking." - The Examiner " This is not a book geared for science nerds, this is reading for anyone interested in life...You will start seeing the world and the universe from new perspectives." - EcoLit Books BASNW 2013 : " An excellent introduction to the key issues in science today. " -PD Smith, The Guardian BASNW 2012 : "There is so much we don't know, which leads us to make so many irrational decisions that we need scientists and science writers to share their inquiries and discoveries in welcoming and lucid prose. Stellar examples of just this sort of cogent and compelling writing sustains this invaluable and exciting series." - Booklist BASNW 2011 : "Don't expect this installment of the popular Best American Science and Nature Writing series to be forbiddingly technical. On her website, guest editor Mary Roach confesses, 'I often write about science, though I don't have a science degree and must fake my way through interviews with experts I can't understand.' With that winning unpretentiousness, Roach seems a perfect choice to select science and nature articles that general readers can enjoy." -Barnes & Noble
