The universe within : discovering the common history of rocks, planets, and people by Neil Shubin

The Universe Within by Neil Shubin has just arrived! By the author of Your Inner Fish, this is a light, fun read, with a variety of anecdotes about time, the universe, world travel, science, and scientists. Good for browsing or reading straight through on a lazy afternoon. The mini biographies that pepper the book are tantalizing, e.g. the “Harvard Computers,” women astronomers who collected raw data and worked to interpret them.
