Some of you may have seen that science author James Gleick has just won the Royal Society Winter Prize for his book "The Information - A History - A Theory - A Flood.
Gleick is a favourite of mine and I recommend his biographies of Richard Feynman and Isaac Newton. As it happens, I am 95% through his prize winning tome, and it's good too: albeit it starts easy but gets rather hard. Eg, is quantum information destroyed when matter enters a black hole? Stephen Hawking once thought it was, but now thinks it isn't! Enjoy.
