Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies
W. W. Norton & Company
Satisfies so many curiousities, excellent work
I had read some good and some not so encouraging reviews of this book before i finally decided to read it. I am glad i did not pay much attention to the negative ones. This is one book that probably should be placed in every important collection of avid readers. Loads of gifts in the form of deductive reasoning from the unwritten past, and each so compelling that you would have to accept it as ...
The Evolution Angel: An Emergency Physician's Lessons with Death and the Divine
Like a breath of fresh air
Have you ever read a book and thought - "I have been waiting for this all of my life!" Well, that is exactly how I felt while reading this book. I bought copies for my friends and gave them as gifts. The book contains nothing really new - but the delivery is credible and thought provoking. I have gone on to read the two other books by the author and found them to be even better.
Biology, 7th Edition (Book & CD-ROM)
Neil A. Campbell
Jane B. Reece
Happy with Purchase
I was happy. Recieved the book 4 days after I ordered it and it was in good condition. CD worked.
The New Physics and Its Evolution
Public Domain Books, 2005
Physics of 100 years ago
This is a very nice book which concentrates on what was known in the field of physics in the first decade of the 20th century. When it was written (1909,) radium and X-rays had recently been discovered, and physicists were still trying to explain the mysterious ether. In his forward the author says that the reader need not know anything about physics to understand what he writes, and that is ...
The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution
Free Press, 2009
The Greatest Show on Earth : The Evidence for Evolution
This book completely destroys the idea of "an intelligent designer". It details how the the evidence for evolution can be found by examining the ways that various parts of the human body have changed with the passage of time and why those parts that are no longer of use are still retained in the body.
Turtle Rock Books, 2010
IT/Programing not there but still good
This book was pretty decent. It was about an A.I. program that became self-aware...very Skynetish. The bad thing was that when it tried to describe a bunch of stuff pertaining to the IT and programming side of things, it just didn't make sense to me how the original program became self-aware or how it manipulated its own code to become a super-powerful system. The story kinda just put down ...
The Selfish Gene : 30th Anniversary edition
Oxford University Press, 2006
The Selfish Gene
Excellent ... A real eye opener. The most plausible explanation of life on earth that I have ever read. And it's not based on a hunch from an ancient philosopher but from a modern scientist conducting real scientific research.
On the Origin of Species By Means of Natural Selection, or, the Preservation of Favoured Races in the ...
Public Domain Books, 1998
A Great Historical Piece
Variations exist within populations that compete for scarce resources needed for survival, and many of these variations not only affect the ability of the individual to compete, but also can be passed onto children. Those variations better suited for competition will be passed on at a higher rate than those that are less suited for competition due to higher rates of survival. In this way, nature ...
The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game
W. W. Norton & Company, 2007
Enjoyed the book, the story helped bring it all together since I had seen the movie first.
Eat Right 4 Your Type: The Individualized Diet Solution
Putnam Adult, 1997
it was wrapped up nice & tight, perfect since we purchased it as a gift. The book arrived within a week, which was very good service.
Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness Are the Keys to Understanding the True Nature of the Universe
BenBella Books, 2009
Written by two highly respected scientists
This is a fascinating and very thought-provoking book co-authored by two highly regarded scientists (a leading astronomer-biologist team). It's shameful the length some individuals will go to stop people from thinking, and to trash an exceptional book to the extent of making blatantly inaccurate claims because the ideas it presents threaten their view of the world. Eiseley hit it right on ...
Dr. Gundry's Diet Evolution: Turn Off the Genes That Are Killing You--And Your Waistline--And Drop the Weight ...
Dr Gundry is onto something here...
This book has been very informative and helpful. My wife learned of it from a friend at work. She thought we should try it. We were both in the right frame of mind and have been following it for about six weeks. I have lost about 20 pounds and she has lost about 12 pounds. We both feel great. I am diabetic and have been taking insulin for about three years. I have been able to stop the insulin ...
Signature in the Cell
HarperCollins e-books, 2009
Two must books to read...
I majored in biology in college not that long after Watson and Crick described DNA. I then went on to study medicine and neurology and have always been fascinated with DNA because I realized as personal computers came forth in the 1980s that there was a connection. I was an early adopter of the PC and remain intrigued with every new "toy" to collect and analyze information. I recall reading a ...
The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate
Henry Holt and Co. (BYR), 2010
Great book set in 1899 in Texas
Great book set in 1899 in Texas. The author paints a wonderful picture of the time. Told in first person, I felt like 12 year old Callie Vee was telling me her story over a cup of tea. It may have been written for teens and I may be 49 years old but I highly recommend it! I cannot wait for more from this author!
The Singularity Is Near: When Humans Transcend Biology
Mike Jorgensen's Review of Kurzweil's The Singularity is Near
Watch Video Here: http://www.amazon.com/review/R2G7UYICWG61Q2 Mike Jorgensen's review was made as part of a critical review assignment for the Spring 2010 Economics of Technology seminar at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, taught by Art Diamond. (The course syllabus stated that part of the critical review assignment consisted of the making of a video recording of the review, and the posting ...
Your Inner Fish: A Journey into the 3.5-Billion-Year History of the Human Body (Vintage)
Yes we evolved! This excellent book presents the evidence very clearly!
You should read this book if you want to develop a better understanding of man's evolution and how we are related to other species. Neil Shubin's book provides a fascinating introduction to man's evolutionary history. The author demonstrates our relationship to other species by describing the evolution of various and key aspects of our bodies, including our skeleton and our senses for vision ...
The Origin Of Species: 150th Anniversary Edition
Signet Classic, 2009
Book report: The Origin of Species, by Charles Darwin
When it comes to subjects like biology and medicine, I am an absolute moron. I only barely avoided failing the one and only biology class I ever took, thanks to an absurd amount of extra-credit outside reading assignments and a science fair project that I still don't understand. I can never remember if DNA is made out of chromosomes or the other way around. Same with proteins and amino acids. I'm ...
Life Ascending: The Ten Great Inventions of Evolution
W. W. Norton & Company, 2009
another great work by Lane
He hits on some of the same themes as in previous works, but those themes are incredibly interesting and well worth another look. Loved it!
The Evolution of God
Little, Brown and Company, 2009
This book is master degree level. If you are a philosopher and can read heavy material this is for you. The book is absolutely amazing in the degree of insight and the variations in the culture of human beings and the religious institutions we create. It is a thorough study in the evolution of religion on Earth. I can't believe how much the author put into the production of this book.
Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future (and a Way to Get There from Here)
Hay House, 2009
Harmonizing the head with the heart
I didn't find this the most readable of books initially, as I couldn't tell where it was going. But when I really got into it, I began to appreciate it. The subject-matter of the book affects all our personal lives - the very existence of the planet, and in fact has broad metaphysical ramifications. I haven't previously read any book quite like it. The authors examine various myths entrenched ...
