Best Science Books of 2023

December 07, 2023

For one last time, John Dupuis and Joanne Manaster have joined us here at Science for the People to recommend their favourite science reads from the last year... and beyond! This is a companion blog to the 7 December 2023 episode The Last Science Book Club: below is the list of science books discusssed on that episode. As usual, we've added our affiliate tag to these links so if you buy something from Amazon because we sent you, we get a little kickback of around $0.50.

While we do provide Amazon links below, as always we encourage you to purchase books from your locally owned and operated bookstores if you can: support the people in your community before throwing money at Amazon!

Note: this page uses javascript to give you Amazon links appropriate for the country your IP resolves to. We don't store or track your IP: the javascript just checks it to build an Amazon link for the store most relevant to you. If some of the below links aren't working, make sure you don't have javascript blocked.
