The Upright Thinkers by Leonard Mlodinow

This book's full title is The Upright Thinkers, The Human Journey from Living in Trees to Understanding the Cosmos. This is an absolutely wonderful book. .It is not long and it is in paperback, but one of the best books I have read about humans in a very long time. It is also a book about science.

There are some good reviews on Good Reads . I would give the book 5 stars but few give it that many. However, lots give it a 4 star rating. There are a few reviews at the bottom of this Amazon page. Interestingly there are six and all but one give this book 5 stars. There is an interesting review of this book and Bill Nye's Unstoppable by Rose Eveleth in the New York Times. She is reviewing these books as audio books. She thinks that Leonard Mlodinow reading style is awful. She is not the only reviewer to say this. Others that reviewed his book in audio format did not like his reading either. This last review is also an interesting one by Brian Clegg on Pop Science Books BlogSpot.

There is a short tell us about your book question from Booklandia to the author. There is an hour long talk by Leonard Mlodinow is at Google. There is also a talk by Leonard Mlodinow at Google on his recent book called Subliminal: How Your Unconscious Mind Rules Your Behavior.

An index of the books I have reviewed are on my website at Books. I have three blogs. The first talks only about specific stocks and is called Investment Talk . The second one contains information on mostly investing and is called Investing Economics Mostly. My last blog is for my book reviews and it is called Non-Fiction Mostly. Follow me on Twitter.
