The Thermodynamics of Pizza
"In fifty-plus essays, . . . Morowitz, a distinguished biophysicist . . .muses over questions that arise in the course of his daily life, his scientific research, and his miscellaneous reading." Some essays require a scientific vocabulary and knowledge; others are comprehensible and interesting to a lay person. The author has a sense of humor which lightens even the dryest of the essays.
"Why do pizzas stay hot? Why are olives edible?
How does ice carry electricity? Why is blood
redder in the tropics? How much is a fingertip
worth? Why do camps require health forms?
What do drooping eyelids, electric eels, and curare
have in common? What was the secret of the sphinx?"
