Best Science Books 2013: Bookish

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 Bookish Best Business Books, History and Politics.

  • The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon by Brad Stone

  • Hatching Twitter: A True Story of Money, Power, Friendship, and Betrayal by Nick Bilton
  • The New Digital Age: Reshaping the Future of People, Nations and Business by Eric Schmidt, Jared Cohen
  • Dogfight: How Apple and Google Went to War to Start a Revolution by Fred Vogelstein
  • An Astronaut’s Guide to Life on Earth: What Going to Space Taught Me About Ingenuity, Determination, and Being Prepared for Anything by Chris Hadfield
  • Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Accident, and the Illusion of Safety by Eric Schlosser
  • 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.
