My favorite magazine New Scientist is holding a contest where you can win the five books named by the Royal Society as the "best science books of 2009." As Metallica once said, "Win 'em all." How do you enter? By telling them Royal Society hoity-toity types what science books they missed from 2009.
So, if you knocked out any science related book published in 2009, you can enter this contest and win some bitchin' swag, including LIFE ASCENDING by Nick Lane.
