Science is central to daily life. As consumers, we are besieged by new products and processes, not to mention a bewildering variety of warnings about health and safety. As taxpayers, we must vote on issues that directly affect our communities - energy taxes, recycling proposals, and more. A firm grasp of the principles and methods of science will help you make life's important decisions in a more informed way.
A research scientist as well as a part-time musician, Hazen has used his vast background in both fields to write a number of books and articles over the years. Some of those books include Music Men, The Poetry of Geology, Keepers of the Flame, and Sciences: An Integrated Approach. Hazen's book, Science Matters: Achieving Scientific Literacy, written with James S. Trefil, was heralded by Kirkus Review as "easily one of the finest available single-volume introductions to science."
