The Beginning and the End of Everything: Paul Parsons **** 17 January 2019 - An impressive feat, compressing all of cosmology and the physics required to support it into a relatively compact and readable book. Excellent, up-to-date introduction for those new to cosmology.

Surveillance Valley: Yasha Levine *** 15 January 2019 - Powerful and insightful book on the relationship between the internet, the big US tech companies and the US military and intelligence services, but almost spoiled by distortion of some facts.

The Rise of Science: Peter Shaver *** 11 January 2019 - Tries to do a huge amount from the entire history of science to describing the nature of science and predicting its future the result is too summary to be very readable.

Lord of the Ice Moons: Michael Carroll *** 24 November 2018 - As Earth's power supplies fail, Gwen Baré is in a race against time to recover generators from Saturn's moon Enceladus, only to discover that the former colony is occupied. Very interesting story, but in need of editing.

This site has no connection with Popular Science magazine or other sites and publications with a similar name.

The website should not be eaten or used where it can come into contact with water.

Much of the content of this site is written by popular science writers or friends of popular science writers. Inevitably many of the reviews in such a small community are written by or about someone we know. We always aim to be impartial in our reviews, but there is a connection which we need make clear, as there is no intention to deceive. The content of any review or article is solely the opinion of the author and should not be read or understood on any other basis. The site exists to promote popular science writing and popular science authors and for this reason should be considered promotional material, just as the editorial reviews in an online bookshop or the blurb on the back of a book should be considered promotional.
