This book is an insightful look at the role that scientists and engineers play at the intersection of nature and humans. Elizabeth Kolbert has a breezy, easy-to-read style, and her book is a good reminder that we need to watch out for the unforseen effects of our actions.

This book gave me a deeper, more nuanced appreciation for the system that is at the core of humanity's fight against COVID-19. Matt Richtel brings complex scientific concepts to life with the stories of four real people whose health challenges illustrate the immune system's features and bugs. If you're asking questions about viruses, vaccines, and immunity, you should pick up An Elegent Defense.
