From the inventor of PCR, the Nobel prize Kary Mullis: Dancing Naked in the Mind Field Mullis is no shy, socially inept bench chemist, though; on the contrary, he has led as big and full a life as possible, opening himself to experiences like hallucinogenic drugs, surfing, casually handling dangerous chemicals, and taking shots at the sacred cows of science.

    Why does a science forum not have pictures of mice and rats?

I found the books by Michael J Fox pretty inspiring--not straight science, but about medical research in general. Another good one is the seven daughters of eve by bryan sykes.

The biology Book of Christopher C. Tisdell is the best for DNA.

Many books are available on the internet about the science.And also spam spam spam botany essay writing service is providing the article and books for the students.It related to the science only.Students get this article from the internet and library.You can get some ideas from this science related article and the books.

why would anybody use a essay writing service when the provider can't write a sensible post?

I'm new to the forum, but I have a new Amazon e-book that fits in this category.  It is "Academania: My Life in the Trenches of Biomedical Research".  It is a science memoir written in lay language for both scientists and non-scientists.  Here is the link--

Forgive me if this comes across as spam, but it seems to be the best way to get the book out there as a self-published author.

Can't believe nobody mentioned "The Eighth Day of Creation" yet ! This book changed the way I look at lab life.

You did not generalized you question. Science is a very waste subject to cover in a single book. How ever you need to question properly for a specific subject you want. [Church Supplies]
