“Best American Science Writing 2011”

Edited by Rebecca and Floyd Skloot. Of the handful of books in this series I’ve read, this was definitely among the best: very few selections suffered from absurd fanboyism, obvious inanity, or just bad writing, and several pieces were absolutely excellent. I was surprised there were not articles by Elizabeth Kolbert, just because she’s consistently among the very best science writers out there. The decision to include several shorter pieces drawn from the New York Times was interesting.
