Simply stunning. Spineless features large, high-quality photos of invertebrate marine life. From starfish to jellyfish, sea snails to squid, Middleton’s photography is breathtakingly vibrant, with descriptive insights into each animal’s world and behavior. Not your average coffee table book, this one will fascinate for hours at a time. ~ Reviewed by Joe Michon-Huneau

Published: Hachette Books - September 11th, 2018

This deftly wrought book almost defies a category. While it is a book of Paleontology this book reads like an old fashioned "Who Dunnit" but throw in international espionage, Mongolian History and a solid dose of psychology and you've got a great read. If you liked Grann's Killers of the Flower Moon this is for you. I love this book. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan

Published: W. W. Norton & Company - June 26th, 2018

A historical review of how endocrinology came to be a cohesive branch of science and medicine rather than a disjointed study of various glands and secretions by scientists who focused only on individual parts of the body, rather than the whole. Epstein startles and delights with tales of parents collecting pituitaries and university basements full of brains. ~ Reviewed by Hanna Yost

Funky study of a funky topic: intestines big and small, bacteria good and bad, and billions of microscopic helpers breaking down and distributing the food we eat to all the right places. Enders' disarming discoveries demonstrate the worthiness to pay heed to our gut feelings. ~ Reviewed by Mike Hare
