Science refers to a study that focuses on nature, the things that makes it up, science studies the relationship between man and his natural surroundings. The topic of science is a dominant one, especially since much has been achieved using its principles. Humans have developed countless things like airplanes, electricity to mention a few. There are millions of science students globally pushing to obtain degrees in this area, to help them contribute to their homes. To be good in this area, the importance of reading cannot be overemphasized. Reading provides accurate knowledge on scientific subjects; it will ensure you remain current with the ongoing trends in the scientific world. It may be too much entering the library to see many books on science, you might struggle with deciding on where to start.
These are some books on science that have maintained their integrity since published. They cover many important topics in science that will be beneficial to the reader. You can start with Feynman lectures on Physics, which is a great choice if you’re interested in focusing on physics as a course, you must consider reading this book. It’s a compilation of different lectures from a good physicist, in book form. Another relevant scientific book is ‘Cosmos’, it focuses on the changes that occurred in science as lifestyle gradually changed. Mankind is moving from an age of rural living, to rapid growth, making civil societies, which is easily followed by changes in science. Cosmos takes record of such changes; the book was so good that a TV Series was coined out of it.
The study of man’s natural environment also proceeds to space. The regions outside the planet are another integral area which science has tried to explain with much clarity. One book that highlights this area properly is ‘Pale blue dot’. The science fiction imagines how life outside the planet will be for mankind, if ever there to go there. There is a strong mixture of philosophy in the writings of Pale Blue Dot. Some other books which attempted to explain thinking for mankind, in a manner that should be critical is ‘the demon-haunted world’. It is available in stores, both online and onsite, reading it will open up a new understanding about reasoning critically.
You should also check out ‘a short history of nearly everything’, a popular write-up, especially if you’re new to science. If you desire to have a brush-through in science, with breakdown of complex scientific facts into simpler ones, this book is perfect for you. It’s difficult to discuss science without mentioning evolution that is why a book on evolution will add value to your reading collection. A good book is ‘the greatest show on earth’, it explains how evolution came about, and supporting with valuable evidence to prove that evolution did happen.
The field of science is interesting, especially if you have the required knowledge to understand it. A good way of acquiring this is by studying some books that will open up complex situations, and make them simple for you. There are yet more books to add to these.
