A few cool items to report this snowy day about Microcosm, my book about life, E. coli, and everything. 1. I'm leaving the snow for a trip to LA next month. Microcosm is a finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. 2. Library Journal also named Microcosmone of the top sci-tech books of 2008. 3. Joanne Manaster has started a nice YouTube series of science book reviews, including this one of Microcosm. (You can also see her review about Death from the Skies, by fellow Discover blogger Phil "Bad Astronomy" Plait).
