The list author says: "A primer collection for those interested in how science works and the latest on scientific knowledge regarding cosmology and evolution, and what it means. Also many of these books are a good source for those interested in improving their critical thinking and understanding how science really works."
"Hawking argues that there is no need for the God hypothesis. M-theory allows for the existence of multiple universes with a different set of physical laws. The perfect complement to R. Dawkins "The God Delusion". 2010"
"Brilliant! A book not only for atheists, but if you believe in God you have to be open minded to read it. A lot of the non-sense from predominant religions is exposed, and a frontal attack to fundamentalist and the pseudo theory put forward by the creationists."
"A review of the ubiquitous use of computer simulation from the point of view of the of philosophy of science. Probably this is the first serious approach to the epistemology of simulation and includes a specific discussion of climate models. 2010"
"A must read. These days it is becoming difficult to separate wheat from chaff, whether you are talking about health or global warming, the media and advocacy groups are often distorting real science. Written for the laymen, this book will help you to do your own critical thinking even if you lack a background in science. 2009"
"A more humane look at how science evolves. It is not such a crystal clear process after all, scientists are human too, with all of weakeness and want for power, money and prestige, and some even have their political agenda. A must read. 2009"
"A collection of Kuhn's latest thoughts on the "Revolutions" published after his death, and again, more answers to the critics. A little repetition of previous writings, recommended only if you want to go into the minute details."
"This book was included in The Economist list of Best Books of 2009. By a famous climate scientist, truly a must read regardless of your side on this debate. This is quite an original analysis of the sociological and philosophical aspects of this debate. 2009"
"A brief review of the history of science regarding predictions, and a comprehensive analysis of the limitations of simulation models used for predictions in the fields of climate, health and economics, and how the three are related."
