April’s 10 most popular books of the month included some regular favourites, but I am happy to see that Laura J Snyder’s Eye of the Beholder has joined our monthly round up. Addy Pross’ book, What is Life? looks intriguingly at the thinning division between chemistry and biology and The Emperor’s New Mind is a modern classic by Roger Penrose. Of course, David Quammen’s The Chimp and the River is a book definitely worth your attention too. Make sure you check them out. 🙂
