Books I am looking at to give for gifts. Most of these have a science flavor. I own a couple and like them.



Scientific American The Amateur Biologist (Paperback)

Filled with experiments from a wide range of specialties, including botany, genetics, behavioral studies, cellular biology, microscopy, microbiology, and entomology, this fascinating book also contains helpful hints and clear instructions on how to build experimental apparatus using simple household materials and affordable alternatives to more expensive scientific equipment.

Hardcover. What do you do? Tim Ferriss has trouble answering the question. Depending on when you ask this
controversial Princeton University guest lecturer, he might answer:
I race motorcycles in Europe. or I ski in the Andes. or I scuba dive in Panama.
