Best Science Books 2013: Goodreads

Every year for the last bunch of years I’ve been linking to and posting all the “year’s best sciencey books” lists that I can find around the web in various media outlets.

From the beginning it’s been a pretty popular service so I’m happy to continue it. The previous posts for all the 2013 lists are here.

This time it’s Goodreads Choice Awards 2013: Memoir & Autobiography, History & Biography, NonFiction.

  • The Spark: A Mother’s Story of Nurturing Genius by Kristine Barnett

  • Frozen in Time: An Epic Story of Survival and a Modern Quest for Lost Heroes of World War II by Mitchell Zuckoff
  • The Autistic Brain: Thinking Across the Spectrum by Temple Grandin
  • Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal by Mary Roach
  • Bad Pharma: How Drug Companies Mislead Doctors and Harm Patients by Ben Goldacre
  • Five Days at Memorial: Life and Death in a Storm-Ravaged Hospital by Sheri Fink

I’m always looking for recommendations and notifications of book lists as they appear in various media outlets. If you see one that I haven’t covered, please let me know at jdupuis at yorku dot ca or in the comments.

I am picking up most of my lists from Largehearted Boy. The summary post for 2012 books is here and all the posts for 2012 can be found here.

And if you wish to support my humble list-making efforts, run on over to Amazon, take a look at Quiet or Steve Jobs or The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks or maybe even something else from the today’s list.
