Science loves Ignorance

This book is a nice, short, entertaining reflection on how science actually works in the real world. Part theoretical, where the author gives his thoughts, and part hands-on, where the author provides "case studies" of real scientists grappling with real questions, I recommend this book for all casual science lovers.

The idea is simple: what we don't know is what drives science. And we don't know a lot.
