Apollo's Fire

Michael Sims, whose name has been dropped a time or two on this blog, has a terrific new book out. Michael, like a lot of us, doesn't see any reason why rational thought can't coexist with joy and wonder. That enlightened sensibility shaped Apollo's Fire, which manages to be both a science primer and a prose poem. It's a fun, smart book, and those don't come along very often, so do check it out if you get a chance. Click here to read my full review.

GREAT review. I'll be picking this book up soon.

I know you'd enjoy this book, Mary--especially after seeing the Jupiter poem.
