Description
Though the public's appetite for science information has grown dramatically in past decades, the speed and frequency of new discoveries can be somewhat daunting for those who wish to understand the latest thinking. Nature editor Peter Tallack offers this remedy: 250 of the most significant scientific milestones, described in short, lucid essays by contemporary scientists and science writers and illustrated with a single striking image.

"Everyone will find something that they didn't know and much that is fascinating. In the end they'll have a better grasp of science and how we got to where we are now."New Scientist
