43 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 2,533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Angier takes the reader on a mesmerizing tour of female anatomy and physiology.

The canon : a whirligig tour of the beautiful basics of science by Natalie Angier( Book )

22 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 2,391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Award-winning science journalist Angier takes us on a "guided twirligig through the scientific canon." She draws on conversations with hundreds of the world's top scientists, and her own work as a reporter for the New York Times, to create an entertaining guide to scientific literacy--a joyride through the major scientific disciplines: physics, chemistry, biology, geology, and astronomy. It's for anyone who wants to understand the great issues of our time--from stem cells and bird flu to evolution and global warming. It's also one of those rare books that reignites our childhood delight in figuring out how things work: we learn what's actually happening when our ice cream melts or our coffee gets cold, what our liver cells do when we eat a caramel, how the horse shows evolution at work, and that we really are all made of stardust.--From publisher description
The beauty of the beastly : new views on the nature of life by Natalie Angier( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and Dutch and held by 1,135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""The beauty of the natural world lies in the details, and most of those details are not the stuff of calendar art," Natalie Angier writes in the introduction to The Beauty of the Beastly. "I have made it a kind of hobby, almost a mission, to write about organisms that many people find repugnant: spiders, scorpions, parasites, worms, rattlesnakes, dung beetles, hyenas. I have done so out of a perverse preference for subjects that other writers generally have ignored, and because I hope to inspire in readers an appreciation for diversity, for imagination, for the twisted, webbed, infinite possibility of the natural world. Every single story that nature tells is gorgeous."" "She has taken pains to learn her science from the molecule up, finding "the very pulse of the machine" in everything from the supple structure of DNA to the erotic ways of barn swallows, queen bees, and the endangered, otherworldly primate called the aye-aye. Angier knows all that scientists know - and sometimes more - about the power of symmetry in sexual relations, about the brutal courting habits of dolphins, about the grand deceit of orchids, about the impact of female and male preference on evolution. She knows how scientists go about their work, and she describes their ways, their visions, and their arguments."--Jacket
Natural obsessions : the search for the oncogene by Natalie Angier( Book )

7 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and French and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The canon : [a whirligig tour of the beautiful basics of science] by Natalie Angier( Recording )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most of the profound questions we will explore in our lives--evolution, global warming, stem cells--have to do with science. So do a lot of everyday things, like our ice cream melting and our coffee getting cold and our vacuum cleaner running (or not). What does our liver do when we eat a caramel? How does the horse demonstrate evolution at work? Are we really made of stardust? (Yes, we are.) In The Canon, Lewis Thomas meets Lewis Carroll in a book destined to become a modern classic--because it quenches our curiosity, sparks our interest in the world around us, reignites our childhood delight in discovering how things work, and instantly makes us smarter

The Canon : the beautiful basics of science by Natalie Angier( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unless we are brilliant at science in our teenage years, many of us put off 'childish things' - science museums, palaeontology - in favour of museums, art galleries and concert halls. A cultured person, Natalie Angier argues, should know about the classic ideas of physics and biology as well as the classic works of Beethoven and Picasso. Drawing on conversations with many of the world's leading scientists, Angier takes us on a vivid, good-humoured and informative tour of this neglected canon. An entertaining guide to scientific literacy - from stem-cell research to bird flu and global warming - that explains the machinery of this place we call home
