A Short History of Nearly Everything [used book], Bill Bryson
1 A Short History of Nearly Everything [used book]
Bill Bryson UK Black Swan 2004 0552997048 / 9780552997041 Soft cover Good Book B-format 
Bill Bryson describes himself as a reluctant traveller: but even when he stays safely in his own study at home, he can't contain his curiosity about the world around him. A Short History of Nearly Everything is his quest to find out everything that has happened from the Big Bang to the rise of civilization - how we got from there, being nothing at all, to here, being us. Bill Bryson's challenge is to take subjects that normally bore the pants off most of us, like geology, chemistry and particle physics, and see if there isn't some way to render them comprehensible to people who have never thought they could be interested in science. It's not so much about what we know, as about how we know what we know. How do we know what is in the centre of the Earth, or what a black hole is, or where the continents were 600 million years ago? How did anyone ever figure these things out? On his travels through time and space, he encounters a splendid collection of astonishingly eccentric, competitive, obsessive and foolish scientists, like the painfully shy Henry Cavendish who worked out many conundrums like how much the Earth weighed, but never bothered to tell anybody about many of his findings. In the company of such extraordinary people, Bill Bryson takes us with him on the ultimate eye-opening journey, and reveals the world in a way most of us have never seen it before.

Popular Mechanics Robots: A New Age of Bionics, Drones and Artificial Intelligence, Editors by Daniel H. Wilson
3 Popular Mechanics Robots: A New Age of Bionics, Drones and Artificial Intelligence
Editors by Daniel H. Wilson USA Hearst Communications 2015 1618371681 / 9781618371683 Hardcover New Book 23.5 x 18.8 x 1.5 cm 
Thanks to film and literature, the idea of robots and artificial intelligence has long intrigued us. The fascination continues with Popular Mechanics Robots, which gathers the very best of the magazine's fantastic robotic coverage and examines the way we live with these machines today - and how we will continue to exist with other advanced technologies in the future. Readers can now discover all varieties of robot, including ones that recognize our faces, gestures, and emotions; drive our cars; serve as highly intelligent personal assistants and medical diagnosticians; go into space; and even become embedded in our architecture and homes. Although robots can inspire both fear and wonder, author David H. Wilson shows how they're not Terminators about to end our days...but the beginning of a brave new world.

The Oxford Book of Modern Science Writing, Richard Dawkins
6 The Oxford Book of Modern Science Writing
Richard Dawkins UK Oxford University Press 2009 0199216819 / 9780199216819 Soft cover New Book Trade Paperback 
Selected and introduced by Richard Dawkins, The Oxford Book of Modern Science Writing is a celebration of the finest writing by scientists for a wider audience - revealing that many of the best scientists have displayed as much imagination and skill with the pen as they have in the laboratory. This is a rich and vibrant collection that captures the poetry and excitement of communicating scientific understanding and scientific effort from 1900 to the present day. Professor Dawkins has included writing from a diverse range of scientists, some of whom need no introduction, and some of whose works have become modern classics, while others may be less familiar - but all convey the passion of great scientists writing about their science. About the Author: Richard Dawkins is the first holder of the Charles Simonyi Chair of the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford, and is a Fellow of New College, Oxford. His bestselling books include The Selfish Gene, The Blind Watchmaker, River Out of Eden, Climbing Mount Improbable, Unweaving the Rainbow, and The Ancestor's Tale. Dawkins is a Fellow of both the Royal Society and the Royal Society of Literature.
