John Carey, "The Faber Book of Science"

Synopsis: The Faber Book of Science introduces hunting spiders and black holes, gorillas and stardust, protons, photons and neutrinos. In his acclaimed anthology, John Carey plots the development of modern science from Leonardo da Vinci to Chaos Theory. The emphasis is on the scientists themselves and their own accounts of their breakthroughs and achievements. The classic science-writers are included - Darwin, T.H. Huxley and Jean Henri Fabre tracking insects through the Provencal countryside. So too are today's experts - Steve Jones on the Human Genome Project, Richard Dawkins on DNA and many other representatives of the contemporary genre of popular science-writing which, John Carey argues, challenges modern poetry and fiction in its imaginative power.

The Faber Book of Science

Lots of essays on all sorts of science related topics (not Oracle scientists of course!) in chronological order. There's a great bit on why painters used to obscure Adam's navel as no-one was sure if he should have one or not.

The pieces are mainly short as well so it's a great one to leave in the w/c:)
