  • Math and monsters, an innovative counting book for children of all ages

    As editor of SB&F I am always on the lookout for new, interesting and unique science books to share with our readers. I’d like to say that I am pretty successful at uncovering little known science books, having them reviewed, and publishing those reviews as quickly as possible. But once and awhile I miss one. Or nearly miss one, as is the case with a book that was recently brought to my attention (thanks to my friends at Science magazine’s Books et al column!).

  • Search the SB&F database to find exactly the right book

    The new SB&F Online launched in August, but one major component of the site was missing at launch: the SB&F searchable database of reviews. The staff of SB&F decided to launch with out the availability of the searchable database because we were still working out some kinks. Now, four months later, kinks gone, our searchable database is up and running and available to our users. This is really exciting to me! As the editor of SB&F I use the SB&F database everyday. I use it to search for books to create bibliographies, to find books to compliment online lessons for Science Netlinks, to locate reviews of classic books, to create reading lists for other programs here at AAAS,...      Read more...
