Science is “a practice, an artform still budding in its years.”
Another great response to my “All Call Challenge” in partnership with Call Me Ishmael, where book-lovers everywhere are calling in to share stories of a book that changed their view of the natural world. This one features Bill Bryson’s A Short History of Nearly Everything, which I must agree is at or near the top of my you-must-definitely-read-this list for any curious reader or fan of science. It’s a classic, weaving science and storytelling, that will make you ask just as many questions as it answers.
You have no idea how happy it makes me to see these responses coming in (check out some others here and here), these inspiring and profound stories being shared with the world by curious people, all because of a little chat I had with a typewriter named Ishmael.
