Just the other day on twitter I had a sudden inspiration to post about one of my favorite science writers. She is right up there with Lee Smolin’s The Trouble with Physics (and that’s the book that helped me make it through my physics degree!). Deborah Blum’s The Poisoner’s Handbook.
I already run around waving my arms and telling everyone I pass how awesome this book is, so I thought, why not run around all over my blog waving my internet-arms and typing frantically “This book is so AWESOME! Read it!”
