            Spend a day inside the curious mind of a chemist as she reveals the fascinating science behind everyday things, like breakfast and trips to the dentist, and not-so-everyday things, like space travel and baby dinosaurs. In Chemistry for Breakfast, Dr. Mai Thi Nguyen-Kim uses the s...ame relatable style that makes her a popular YouTuber to explain essential scientific concepts. Over the course of a single day, Mai shows us that amazing science happens everywhere-we just have to know to look for it. In the morning, her alarm prompts a deep dive into biological clocks and fight-or-flight responses, followed by a coffee with a side of heat conduction and states of matter. Mai continues her day with explainers of cell phone technology, food preservation, body odor, and the effects of alcohol. Throughout, she explains why there are no easy answers in chemistry, and shares the challenges of communicating science to the public. She concludes by summarizing her mission-to give readers everywhere an appreciation of facts and a basic understanding of the science of everyday life.

            Futurists are certain that humanlike AI is on the horizon, but in fact engineers have no idea how to program human reasoning. AI reasons from statistical correlations across data sets, while common sense is based heavily on conjecture. Erik Larson argues that hyping existing meth...ods will only hold us back from developing truly humanlike AI.
