Brushing Up on Science

Do you ever feel like high school was a long time ago?  I know I’ve forgotten so much about basic science since then, and all fields have expanded immensely.  I ran across A Short History of Nearly Everything by Bill Bryson and was amazed at how much information he packs into such an entertaining read.  I particularly recommend the audiobook of the title, which the author narrated himself.  I just bought another copy for Father’s Day!

Salon columnist Roach explains how surgeons and doctors use cadavers donated for research purposes to help the living, and also examines potential new variations on how we bury the dead." - Library Journal review excerpt
