Discovery : The Search for DNA's Secrets
Hoagland, Mahlon
ISBN: 0395305101
Houghton Mifflin Company, USA, 1981. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Near Fine/Very Good. First Edition. 198 pages. Dustjacket is in very good condition with only minor bumping, wear and/or foxing. Dust Jacket un-clipped. Page edges slightly foxed. An insider writes about one of science's most exciting periods: the twenty years from the early forties to the early sixties, during which DNA's secrets were, one by one, revealed. Dr Mahlon Hoagland knows the story well. His own discoveries on how cells make proteins came about as his friends and fellow explorers Francis Crick, James Watson, and Jacques Monod made their great breakthroughs. Making the complex accessible is Dr Hoagland's forte, but he does more than explain the key experiments that unlocked DNA's mysteries. He gets inside the minds of those who performed them and actually describes the pathways of scientific reasoning. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Science & Technology; ISBN: 0395305101.

How to Live Dangerously
Cairns, Warwick
ISBN: 9780230712218
Pan Macmillan, London, 2008. First Edition
 Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. As New/. First Edition. 197 pages. Multiple copies of this title available. This book is an unread copy. Covers have no creasing or wear. Spine is uncreased. Pages are clean and unmarked and in excellent condition. A brilliantly entertaining polemic about the need to embrace risk, and live your life to the full. We live in a society governed by fear. Packets of peanuts "may contain nuts", our children are locked away safe indoors, and we are encouraged to fear risks that previous generations took for granted. The result is a temptation never to leave the house. How to Live Dangerously is a sane, straight-talking, wonderfully entertaining manifesto that assesses the real risks of modern-day life*, and encourages us to embrace a new freedom in the way we live. Sometimes, sh1t happens but you may as well get out there and enjoy yourself while you can because, in the end, you're a long time dead. Don't like your children much? You'd have to lock them out of the house every day for 186,000 years before they were abducted (and even then you'd get them back within 24 hours). Afraid of flying? If you really want to die in a plane crash, you'll need to take a flight a day for the next 26,000 years... Quantity Available: 8. Category: Science & Technology; ISBN/EAN: 9780230712218.
