Reviews - What do customers think about Mother Nature's Two Laws: Ringmasters for Circus Earth--Lessons on Entropy, Energy, Critical Thinking and the Practice of Science?

back to basics helps scientists, too  May 5, 2003
I admit nearly passing on this book because of its goofy title. But I'm trying to return to the simple things in life, now, including the fundamental laws of physics. These, at least, have remained steadfast and reliable as I've gone through various stages of confusion and confoundment. Since entropy is one of these reliable consistencies in life, I was looking for a kind of "Entropy For Dummies" introduction. This looked like it fit the bill.

The fact is, it exceeds my expectations in every category. If you're a scientist, please take a look at this volume. Not only does it give clear presentations of otherwise complex concepts that are helpful in your own thinking, but you will probably know many others whose lives could be greatly improved by it.

Seriously, this book should be republished with a more sober title. It's a good solid treatment of information that every curious mind in the world needs.

It's a treasure!

 
Lively- for a scientist.  Mar 23, 2001
Not usually a great reader of science, I stumbled across this book at my local library, books on entropy not usually a primary concern of my reading list. But I was pleasently suprised with the fluidity and - yes!- wit with which Kirwan writes. He deserves praise for explaining a topic as dry as critical thinking in such an engaging manner. This is an excellent book for laymen and I wish more scientists would learn to write as well as Kirwan. Heartily recommended for the scientifically challenged who need a break from the usual fare of histories and novels. And yes, it turns out entropy is quite important. Who would have guessed?
 
Science for non scientists  Jan 12, 2001
This is an excellent book for non scientists interested in Nature. It reads very well. Would be a great textbook for a course "science for non majors" or "introduction to science". Wonderful present for your teenager.
