- 10,000 Year Explosion by Greg Cochran and Henry Harpending. People are still evolving!
- The Honest Broker by Roger Pielke, Jr. If, like me, you’re a scientist or engineer, and you have never read a political science book, this book may bring a few revelations.
- Brain Rules by John Medina. An intro to brain neurobiology, purporting to be a business book. Or maybe vice versa, I can’t really tell.
- Echoes of Life by Susan M. Gaines, GeoffreyEglinton, and Jurgen Rullkotter. A fascinating and thorough, if a bit self-indulgent, history of biomarkers and geobiology.
