RSB's science editor, the lovely Stuart Watkins, has brought my attention to a few recent, decent science book reviews: Marek Kohn reviews Lewis Wolpert's Six Impossible Things Before Breakfast (a good book, says Marek, but its vision of man the tool-maker is now overlaid by one of humans as social animals); why we won't be mistaking machines for humans any time soon (via 3 Quarks); and the dangerous battle to find clues about our past (via SciTech Daily Review).
