Summary
"The latest volume in the bestselling series from Edge.org-- dubbed 'the world's smartest website' by The Guardian-- brings together 175 of the world's most innovative and brilliant thinkers to discuss recent scientific breakthroughs that will shape the future. Scientific developments radically alter our understanding of the world. Whether it's technology, climate change, health research, or the latest revelations of neuroscience, physics, or psychology, science has, as Edge editor John Brockman says, 'become a big story, if not the big story.' In that spirit, this new addition to Edge.org's fascinating series asks a powerful and provocative question: What do you consider the most interesting and important recent scientific news?"--Amazon.com
