Description
Should we trust genetically modified food? Do we really want to know if we have an incurable genetic disease before the symptoms actually appear? Sifting past the intentionally misleading headlines and cherry-picked facts being published as science, Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Deborah Blum—author of The Poisoner's Handbook—challenges such questions and many others in her selection of articles for this anthology. As she notes in her introduction, Blum strives to show readers the "curving, complicated line that links discovery and development, choice and consequence." Since its inception in 1915, the Best American series has become the premier annual showcase for the country's finest short fiction and nonfiction. For this edition, as for the others in the series, the series editor first reviewed hundreds of periodicals from the previous publishing year, selecting between 50 and 100 outstanding works, before the guest editor made the final selection of the very best pieces.

"Undeniably exquisite ... the essays in the collection [are] meditations that reveal not only how science actually happens but also who or what propels its immutable humanity."—Brain Pickings
