Book Hunters #107: Readable Science

A very well-adjusted and successful highschooler recently told me, "Smart is the new dumb," which doesn't make much sense in any context but high school. It seems that a generation of young people have come to the revolutionary notion that intelligence is a good thing. I don't know about you, but when I was in high school, it wasn't cool to get good grades. It wasn't cool to learn for the sake of learning. Consequently, I knew a lot of really smart people who pretended that the only thing they had on their mind was their hair. Thankfully things have changed for the better which is probably at least partially responsible for the fact that some of the best writing being done today is science writing.
