Description


A collection of the best science and nature writing published in North America in 2019, guest edited by New York Times best-selling author and ground-breaking physicist Dr. Michio Kaku.

These gripping narratives masterfully translate the work of today’s brightest scientists, offering a clearer view of our world and making us care.
