Wonderdog: Jules Howard ***** 13 May 2022 - With a light touch, Howard takes us enjoyably through the way that dogs have contributed to scientific knowledge and what science has taught us about dogs.

An Infinity of Worlds: Will Kinney *** 20 April 2022 - Good on the basics of inflation, but assumes so much about the reader's knowledge of other aspects of cosmology it's difficult to see who the audience is.

Schrödinger in Oxford: David Clary *** 18 April 2022 - Some fascinating details of the quantum physicist's brief period as a Fellow of Magdalen College, Oxford - but too fine grained in its coverage for the general reader.

Tell Me an Ending: Jo Harkin **** 16 May 2022 - Despite a structure I found confusing, this is an excellent novel exploring the implications of a technology company offering a procedure to remove unwanted memories.

Project Hail Mary - Andy Weir ***** 12 May 2022 - If you like an SF book with lots of real science underlying the action, this is pretty much the perfect science fiction novel.

The Clockwork Man - E. V. Odle *** 6 May 2022 - A weird 1923 cross between a humorous romance of the period and a mythological creation. Often called the first cyborg story - but it isn't really.

The Music Instinct: Philip Ball **** 12 April 2022 - Though it dates back to 2010, a wonderful exploration of what music is, how it is put together and how it affects us.

Fancy a break from science books?

In the seventh Stephen Capel mystery, an impossible murder on a fairground ride opens up a trail that leads to Anglo-Saxon treasure, a mysterious tunnel and a deadly confrontation

When Stephen Capel and Vicky Denning meet historical fiction author Margaret LeVine at the Mop fair in Marlborough, they expect to discuss Capel's plans to start a literary festival - but on a fairground ride, LeVine is killed without anyone appearing to touch her. Soon, LeVine's is not the only life in danger as Capel uncovers connections in the literary world and the hiding place of a long-lost Anglo-Saxon hoard.

The Stephen Capel Mysteries bring the classic British detective story into the twenty-first century.

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.
