Y : the descent of men by Steve Jones( Book )

38 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,661 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher's description: Renowned scientist and author Steve Jones reveals the mysteries of maleness and arrives at a startling conclusion: men are actually the second sex. Beginning with what men consider the "prince of chromosomes"--Y -- Jones delves into the latest research on what makes a man. He explores hormones, hair loss, and the hydraulics of erections. We learn that estrogen, the so-called female hormone, is critical in male puberty and intercourse, yet men who take additional doses of the "male" hormone, testosterone, risk medical problems. And the notion that bald men have extra testosterone is a myth. Building on such findings, Jones corrals the new wealth of research on the science of men to show how males are "wilting away"--their true destiny. Women are living ever longer than men, who are less successful at fighting off diseases. What's more, the latest information about sperm counts and chemical pollution indicates that males are being feminized. (Even a week's indulgence in licorice leads to lower sperm production.) And factors such as violence and education play a role. According to Jones, men may have to accept that the twenty-first century might be the "age of women." This book will captivate every man--and woman

12 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Serpent's Promise, Steve Jones retells many of the biblical tales in the light of modern science. Are we all descended from a real-life Adam and Eve? Are some - or all - of us marked with the molecular equivalent of original sin and, if so, what can we do about it? Was the Bible's Great Flood a memory of the end of the Ice Age? Will we get back to Methuselah, given that life expectancy is now rising by six hours a day, every day? And what can science tell us of the mystical experiences reported by the faithful, or of the origin of faith itself?

The single helix : a turn around the world of science by Steve Jones( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Single Helix brings to life a vast diversity of subjects, united under the banner of scientific truth - the universal solvent that brings clarity to almost all the mysteries of the world we live in. Scientists are trained to know ever more about even less but here Steve Jones sets out deliberately to explore subjects in which he is emphatically not an expert (although his favourite snail, the single Helix of his title, does poke in a tentacle here and there). His insatiable curiosity and enthusiasm as he sheds light on unexpected corners of knowledge combine to produce science writing at its very best. From chaos in the heavens to the fight against creationism, from optical illusions in tartan to the mathematics of elections and what rules the sex lives of cats The Single Helix is a scientist's look at sciences other than his own -and as a result its author has been forced to make the complicated simple enough for even a biologist to understand

No need for geniuses : revolutionary science in the Age of the Guillotine by Steve Jones( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paris at the time of the French Revolution was the world capital of science. Its scholars laid the foundations of today's physics, chemistry and biology. They were true revolutionaries: agents of an upheaval both of understanding and of politics. Many had an astonishing breadth of talents. The Minister of Finance just before the upheaval did research on crystals and the spread of animal disease. After it, Paris's first mayor was an astronomer, the general who fought off invaders was a mathematician while Marat, a major figure in the Terror, saw himself as a leading physicist. Paris in the century around 1789 saw the first lightning conductor, the first flight, the first estimate of the speed of light and the invention of the tin can and the stethoscope. The metre replaced the yard and the theory of evolution came into being. The city was saturated in science and many of its monuments still are. The Eiffel Tower, built to celebrate the Revolution's centennial, saw the world's first wind-tunnel and first radio message, and first observation of cosmic rays. Perhaps the greatest Revolutionary scientist of all, Antoine Lavoisier, founded modern chemistry and physiology, transformed French farming, and much improved gunpowder manufacture. His political activities brought him a fortune, but in the end led to his execution. The judge who sentenced him - and many other researchers - claimed that 'the Revolution has no need for geniuses'. In this enthralling and timely book Steve Jones shows how wrong this was and takes a sideways look at Paris, its history, and its science, to give a dazzling new insight into the City of Light --
