MIND OVER MATTER: Conversations with the Cosmos
Cole knows science and she knows why science matters, why it matters more than we can know, and she works hard at getting that message across to a sometimes reluctant public. Science writers are as necessary to the modern world as electricity is to our homes. In some places in the world there is neither. We are lucky to be able to turn on the lights and to read someone as lucid and pertinent as K. Mar 12, Sunny rated it really liked it.
Conversations with the cosmos! Comprised of short articles by K. Cole published in the LA times. May 02, Jay R. I thought this was a very interesting compilation of short and informative essays about the space we occupy and more. Dec 20, Carolyn rated it liked it Shelves: nonfiction.
I've never read anyone else so skilled at making science transparent to the lay person. I didn't like this as much as the book of hers I read last year, however, "The Universe and the Teacup: The Mathematics of Truth and Beauty" , purely I think because this book is much shorter, choppier pieces most taken, I believe, from her columns in the Los Angeles Times. That said, I thought the last section " 'Political' Science" was very powerful and very right on the money.
There's no bullshitting he I've never read anyone else so skilled at making science transparent to the lay person. There's no bullshitting here. This book is really cute.
I has short little essays on topcis such as "Interference" or "Love" or "Clouds" where KC Cole draws analogies from real life to explain the cosmos. I read a chapter everytime I use the bathroom :P and find its contents inspirational and neat to think about, and despite its simplicity, the clarity of the writing borderlines poetic.

Great writer and interesting, make-you-think topics. While reading this book I started most days with one or two of these science essays before getting out of bed. Cole used to write for the LA Times. An excellent and entertaining book for anyone interested in science, especially physics.
The author, K. Cole does a fantastic job in drawing her readers with very engaging anecdotes from everyday life that are beautifully weaved into the fabric of their connections to science.
