Críticas: "This book is a happy reminder that science can become much less daunting in the hands of an enthusiastic teacher." (London Review of Books) "Steven Vogel capably demonstrates how a scientist can unite micro and macro perspectives in looking at the natural world.... His firsthand account of many of his own experiments, and the joy with which he recounts them, brings the scientific process to life." (Publishers Weekly) "Steven Vogel's obvious enthusiasm for the subject and his skill at writing shine through with clarity and joy." (Library Journal) "This is one of those books that powerfully, and often entertainingly, demystifies science." (Nature)"

Book Description Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2013., 2013. Octavo, paperback,303 pp.,colour photographs, line drawings. In this book, the leaf serves as a biological example, an ordinary living thing that nonetheless speaks volumes about our environment as well as its own. Thus in exploring the leaf's world, Vogel simultaneously explores our own, answering questions about how objects get much hotter than air when in sunlight and far cooler when beneath a clear night sky, how air movement matters even when we can't feel it, how objects such as trees avoid damage from storms, and how gases diffuse and bubbles form. He introduces us to ways leaves acquire the essential resources needed to grow and reproduce, resources not all that different from those needed by animals and humans. In considering science on our personal scale, Vogel refers complex concepts to everyday observations in our immediate experiences. Within these pages, he provides incredible food for thought and the tools for a new way of seeing the beauty and simplicity of the science of life. Also available in hardcover [stock id 34465].
