    • Great way to stay updated I am an armchair,wannabe scientist I found this book series of articles to be a good update on the current research and thought The book was broken down well and very well organized For the most part the writing and language was very approachable I would recommend this to anyone with interest in the roads that scientific development is traveling.


    • I am a regular reader of Quanta, and I appreciated this compilation of recent and relevant articles on scientific developments Well, except the machine learning sections, but that s only because I consider that technology than natural science For those that don t read Quanta, I recommend that you do
