In summer many of us have more time to read, so I'd like to highlight some recently published books about science and technology available at the North York Central Library.
People often want to read something lighter in summer, so I've selected books that are suitable for a hammock or the beach. Books about science and technology don't have to be heavy going!
All of these books piqued my interest and I've added a few to my own summer reading list. I hope you'll feel the same way and give one - or more - a try. Many are available in a variety of formats for your summer reading convenience.
The central question of this book is the following: if our civilization were to collapse tomorrow, what crucial knowledge would the survivors need to rebuild a modern, technological society as quickly as possible? The result is "a guide for rebooting the world". This premise provides the framework for a history of techology, focusing on the advances which have been most crucial to human development. Sounds cool!
Happy summer reading.
