Discover’s 25 Greatest Science Books

Discover Magazine has published a list of the 25 greatest science books. The list is almost exclusively either original works of research (such as Darwin’s The Voyage of the Beagle and The Origin of Species, the top 2 books), or popularizations of that research by experts in the field (such as The Double Helix by James Watson).

  1. Where’s Elementa, Disquisitiones Arithmeticae, Introductio in analysin infinitorum, etc ? Surely Euclide, Gauss and Euler deserve to be on the list more than Carson, Gould or Lewis and Clark?
