    ?We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but it is somewhat beauty and poetry.? Maria Mitchell I first became aware of the intersection of science and poetry in Annie Dillard?s Pilgrim at Tinker Creek (does anyone else have a book ...

    I think I liked it more than last year's but less then 2018. While the overall quality was consistent, there were few "wow" essays that make me put down the book and just think. Those gems are a reason I love this series and this collection qualifies as "solid"...

    Every year is different in this series. The note in the introduction about how this year's collection is a time capsule suspended in time before our world shifted permanently due to the pandemic, is deeply felt. Every year is different in this series. The note in the introduct...

    I found the book to be a generally fine anthology, and a great way to catch up with some recent findings - such as the remarkable Tanis (fossil site). The anthology format makes the book easy to read, because if it ever starts to drag a bit, soon enough you're on to the next piece...

    Damn good yearly antho as always: this collection leans towards astronomy, physics, with some good paleontological hits and AI language learning essays as well. All really important pieces to read that will inspire a bunch of sci-fi in my head, but also longform climate journalism I ca...

    A step in the right direction. You have to have had your head under a rock to not notice the last few years that this series was hit hard by politics. No, not Trump, but the desperate attempt to be politically sensitive. And as a result, it chose some editors who were, well, not go...

    OK, so back at this series again. The 2013 one was required reading, and the 2019 was a read of easy access. Read this one because the anthology series has done a solid job in past years, and I like the cover this time around; I almost wished I was better as frosting cookies to mim...

    I have read about 4 years of these. A pleasant way to expose myself to a diverse collections of topics in the scientists voice. A deeper unfolding of the theme from a journalist or scientist that is not the short online news article. There are many people tirelessly working to discover...

    Each chapter is a different topic by a different author which made the book more interesting to me. Some topics I found very interesting while others I lost my interest in and would not have read through if they were any longer. Good variety of topics. ...

    Good collection of articles. My favorite articles are The Day the Dinosaurs Died and The Hunt for Planet Nine. Because of the book format, pictures, diagrams, and some interactive features are not available as they would be in a magazine or online. It would have been good to have at le...

    An excellent collection of science and nature shorts. I enjoyed them all except the one about the Paradise fire - which was long and seemed out of place in the collection. ...
