Top 10 books in Science!

Each Monday, we take a look at the top 10 books in a particular genre. This week we look at current bestsellers in the Science genre:

The Bond: Our Kinship with Animals, Our Call to Defend ThemThe Worst Hard Time: The Untold Story of Those Who Survived the Great Am...Mother's Remedies Over One Thousand Tried and Tested Remedies from Mothe...On the Origin of Species By Means of Natural Selection, or, the Preserva...Steve Jobs
Making Sense of People: Decoding the Mysteries of Personality Homeopathy made easyMortalityThe Immortal Life of Henrietta LacksEffective Programming: More Than Writing Code

This is an interesting mix of books. I'm not sure I would put the Steve Jobs autobiography in the Science genre, but it's a fascinating book. 

I've also read recently Darwin's On the Origin of Species. It's surprisingly readable, and walks the reader down Darwin's findings and logical progression that led to his revolutionary theories. It's also a free Kindle book.

I also read David Quammen's The Reluctant Mr. Darwin, which gives an intimate glimpse into Charles Darwin, his family, and his times. 

Let us know if you've enjoyed any of these top ten books!
