    Get this from a library! Cosmic apprentice: dispatches from the edges of science. [Dorion Sagan] -- As science has become more specialized and more costly, its questing spirit has been constrained by dogma. And philosophy, perhaps the discipline best placed to question orthodoxy, has retreated. Balanced coverage of the leading theories that are on the edge of physics would have resulted in a much better book. To fit this in the same page count, the book would need to focus on the core topic without all of the off-topic material that should have been cut anyhow.

    An eye-opening and compelling book with new insights for young scholars and seasoned professionals alike. These rock star contributors and editors don’t just synthesize cutting-edge science on the early years, they lay bare the implications of ignoring it. The book’s five high-impact recommendations are must-dos for our country and our world.   Beveled edges, or beveled boards, describe a technique of binding in which the edges of book boards have been cut into slanted angles. This is a purely esthetic look created for books. Crushed or torn beveled edges, as pictured below, can reduce the price of a collectible book.

    Cosmic Apprentice is a brilliant piece of science writing, weaving together many of the themes that Dorion has explored separately in earlier books: life as gradientfeeding negentropy, the promiscuous hospitality of symbiosis, the question of where science ends and philosophy begins, the whys and wherefores of sex, and how life shaped and.   On the heels of the year’s most intelligent and imaginative children’s books come the most stimulating science books published this annum.
