The November issue is now available online for SB&F subscribers and AAAS members. The issue features the 2010 SB&F Prize finalists, along with a list of recommended resources on infectious diseases and vaccines. Plus SB&F reviews are available for more than 50 new science books for children, young adults, and adults. Some of my favorite books reviewed in this issue include: for children, Young Charles Darwin and the Voyage of the Beagle (Peachtree, 2009) and Organs! How They Work, Fall Apart, and Can Be Replaced (Gasp!) (Greenwillow Books, 2009); for young adults, How Weird Is It? A Freaky Book All About Strangeness (Scholastic, 2009) and Out of This World: The Amazing Search for an Alien Earth (Kids Can Press, 2009); and for adults, Mathematics in 10 Lessons: The Grand Tour (Prometheus Books, 2009) and The Dressed Ape: A Natural History of Myself (Random House, 2009).
