The Best Books of 2020: Popular Science
In a year in which we have all been encouraged to put our faith in 'the science,' popular science publishing has delivered standout books in all disciplines. The burning political questions of the day have been addressed with rigorous logic, data and analysis through the work of Eugenia Cheng, Pragya Agarwal and Adam Rutherford, whilst the inexorable rise of Artificial Intelligence and 'big tech' have formed the basis of fascinating studies from Tabitha Goldstaub and James Ball respectively. In other areas, we have been gifted a revolutionary approach to breathing, a meditation on our relationship to the heavens and a hearteningly optimistic study of humanity's enduring respect for kindness.
