Art of Science

I returned The Art of Science by Richard Hamblyn to Wembley Library on Tuesday.  It is the kind of serendipitous find that I would borrow from a library but probably give a miss in a bookshop.  The reason being I suppose that there are lots of books that look similar and the books that claim to do something similar and the author is not as well known (to me) as say Richard Dawkins.  However, I thought the Hamblyn anthology of science writing was much better than Dawkins' effort in the same genre.  It is an example of how libraries might perform a showrooming function in future.
