Enjoyable Scientific Books You Must Read

IJSO, Bali - Books about science are frequently judged as boring to death and hard to read. Apparently, some greatest scientific books successfully proved it wrong. They brought us into a delightful reading adventure like any of our favorite fictional novels. You will find narrative tricks and tropes which are often used in science fiction, fantasy, horror ones.

If you are a fan of environmental science, you will find Bill McKibben’s masterpiece “Eaarth” fascinating. The premise of the book is that we are about to find ourselves living on an alien planet called Eaarth which is a hot new world and how we can together prevent that from trully happening.

Michio Kaku’s “Physics of the Impossible” is perfect for the fan of physic. The book is structured around mind blowing science fictional scenarios like teleportation and time travel.

Fan of social science will fall in love with Mara Hvistendahl’s “Unnatural Selection”. The book is a about a captivating story of how the populations of countries in Asia and Central Europe became gender-skewed. Humanity is shaping its own evolution in an unprecedented way.

Another enchanting book is Maria Konnikova’s “Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes”. Undoubtedly, all the fans of the most famous fictional detective will fancy the author’s idea of mindfulness. It’s about how to think rationally, overcome bias and solve problems in real life using just the power of psychological insight.

Last but not least is Douglas Hofstadter’s “Godel, Escher, Bach: An Eternal Golden Braid”. The pullitzer price winner author explored everything in this from mathematics and physics to cellular signaling patterns. Like fantasy authors Susanna Clarke and Dan Simmons, Hofstadter mixed fantasy, history and philosophy beautifully to create a work of art that’s as much about learning how to think as it is anything else.
