From Library Journal
Published in conjunction with National Science and Technology week (April 22-28), this collection of 75 short articles originally published in the editorial and opinion pages of daily newspapers aims to bridge the information gap between technical experts and the general public. Subjects discussed include experimental drugs in AIDS treatment, the greenhouse effect, infertility, the energy crisis, and animal experimentation. The contributing authors, authorities in their respective fields, succeed in communicating their topics to general readers without using technical jargon. This is recommended for public and university libraries with general science collections.
