Summary
"This year's selections in The Best American Science and Nature Writing take on an array of topics that matter, all united by passionate writing. Natalie Angier defends agnosticism in a year dominated by discussions of faith, and Jenny Everett writes about the "invisible but intense" process of human growth, her little brother, and the newly approved drug Humatrope. Oliver Sacks explores the realms of consciousness, Frederick Crews traces the staying power of the Rorschach personality test, and William Speed Weed casts a gimlet eye on the wash of science claims encountered by a single man in a single day."--BOOK JACKET
