Science Books Vie for Big Prize
Scientists and science fans, it's time to make your summer reading
lists. This BBC Online site contains brief reviews of the twelve books
(six of them children's) on the shortlist for this year's Aventis
Prize for science books. One of the judges, author and former Booker
Prize judge Maggie Gee, said of the finalists: "There are more ideas
in these books than I find in contemporary fiction." The winner will
be announced June 12, 2001.
