The Universal Force by Louis A. Girifalco (US|UK)

The Universal Force describes gravitation as seen by examining the achievements of those great scientists who have struggled with this mysterious force of nature. It’s interesting to notice that both giants of physics, Einstein and Newton, contributed greatly to our understanding of gravity, which cemented their names in the history of physics. And that is no surprise if one looks at the hard-to-comprehend nature of gravity, which is linked to the physics of space and time. The Universal Force delves deep into the history of science and philosophy to tell the story of gravity.

An Aristotelian Realist Philosophy of Mathematics by James Franklin (US|UK)

According to the aristotelian philosophy, mathematics is a science of the real aspects of the world, rather than a study of abstract objects, a mere language or logic. This book by James Franklin, a Professor of Mathematics at the University of New South Wales, explores this view putting applied mathematics at the center of attention.

Scatter, Adapt and Remember by Annalee Newitz (US|UK)

Throughout the 4.5 billion year history of Earth, life has been close to extinction many times. And even though it’s hard to believe, we are facing the same dangers that our ancestors faced millions of years ago. Due to the rapid evolution of technology, however, we are more equipped with the tools to survive any cataclysm. In this new book, Analee Newitz, the editor of io9.com, discusses how scientific evolution will help the human race to survive.
