Now re-reading (actually listening to) Brian Cox & Andrew Cohen’s wonderful book, Human Universe. Beautifully & intelligently written (& the same goes for Samuel West’s reading). A book that fills one with admiration for science as perhaps humanity’s most sublime achievement.
Excellent account, by Ex-Muslims of America, of the whole story behind attempts to murder Salman Rushdie
