Einstein defiant genius versus genius in the quantum revolution by Edmund Blair Bolles ( )
12 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,954 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Quantum mechanics was perhaps the single greatest scientific discovery of 20th century physics. But the man who was arguably the greatest physicist of them all - Albert Einstein - struggled with the theory, seeking a more complete explanation of the physical phenomena that scientists were observing. Einstein's reluctance to embrace the quantum ultimately pitted him against another great genius of the era, Niels Bohr, a pragmatist who readily accepted a theory that allowed for unpredictability. Einstein stubbornly insisted on a deeper understanding. This contest of visions ripped through the scientific community, giving rise to one of the most impassioned debates of modern physics." "As the debate crisscrossed Europe, it generated heated discussions and worldwide controversy. With Nobel Prizes awarded to both Einstein and Bohr on the same day, this war of words and ideas continued to play out in lecture halls from Sweden to Japan and beyond. Einstein Defiant is the first book to capture the soul and the science that inspired this dramatic duel, revealing the personalities and the passions - and, in the end, what was at stake for our fundamental understanding of how the world works."--Jacket

Babel's dawn : a natural history of the origins of speech by Edmund Blair Bolles ( Book )
6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Babel's Dawn is a saga covering six million years. Like a walk through a natural history museum, Edmund Blair Bolles demonstrates how members of the human lineage came to speak. Beginning with a diorama of the last common ancestor ignoring a bird as it flies by, he guides us through generations, illuminating how it became possible for two Homo sapiens not only to acknowledge the songbird, but also to discuss the meaning of its song. Tracing the rise of voluntary vocalizations as well as the first word, phrases, and sentences, Bolles works against the common belief that the reason apes cannot speak is they are not smart enough. In this groundbreaking work, Bolles proposes that we now have substantial evidence that this age-old idea can no longer stand. With concrete portrayals of living individuals interwoven with evidence, data, and theory, Babel's Dawn is an account of a great scientific revolution

"Chemist and physicist Marie Curie reminisces about her and her husband's efforts to isolate the element radium. Greek historian Herodotus observes the Nile Valley and concludes that it was once under water. Astronomer and author Carl Sagan argues against assertions that aliens regularly visit Earth." "These are among the literary gems Edmund Blair Bolles includes in Galileo's Commandment: An Anthology of Great Science Writing. Bolles has scoured the literature of science to build a treasury that is accessible and riveting, and therefore appealing to readers unfamiliar with science, yet erudite enough for the scientifically initiated reader to enjoy."--BOOK JACKET
