I haven't decided on all my books yet, so I'm happy to take recommendations from people. The theme is "nature's wonders." The first book I'm going to review for this is Uncertainty on a Himalayan Scale, which, is uh, academic as hell, and yet awesome. For example, the book goes into a little discussion on how you define "forest." Yeah, I know, I know, forest is like porn, we know it when we see it, but really, if you think about it, how do you define it? Tricky huh?
I can't find it at this moment, but the UN definition of "forest" is absolutely hilarious in its specificity of area, tree height, etc. Seriously, in the words of the immortal Karen Walker, "It's funny cuz it's sad."
