ASTRONOMY & NATURAL HISTORY CONNECTIONS: FROM DARWIN TO EINSTEIN A New book by Barry Boyce 2 dynamic, in-depth courses in 1 - Essential reading for the ever-curious in both sciences that are effectively, and thoroughly presented by a proven outreach teaching method – lectures in the field, under the sky, and on the ocean – not in a classroom. The coverage is thorough - check out the table of contents. This is a single-source reference book with entertaining yet thorough discussions on relativity, quantum mechanics, speciation, and natural selection. From the Classic Greek Periods to the present, many key biographies are included to maintain a historical perspective and to see the origins of the many connections between the physical and biological worlds around you, including the Universe or Cosmos – whichever you are more comfortable with. The reader is asked to bring his/ her interest and curiosity; the book will provide the information and inspiration – both will be within easy reach.
