Reviews - What do customers think about The Birds, the Bees and the Platypuses: Crazy, Sexy and Cool Stories from Science (Erlebnis Wissenschaft)?

A fascinating excursion to the outposts of scientific inquiry  Jul 23, 2008
Gross has a knack for finding unusual stories in biology, chemistry, and other scientific and technological subjects and writing about them in a funny, accessible manner. Living in an age of extraordinary change in the emerging fields of nanotechnology and biotechnology, it is sometimes difficult to keep up with the rapid developments in these areas, let alone relate them to our own lives. Gross manages to do just that--to take these topics and distill their deep connections with human experiences. I would highly recommend this book for a light-hearted, personal and highly informative journey to the frontiers of science.
