    This book is the second volume in the "Detection Science" Series, edited by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC). Herein, leading academic researchers and clinical practitioners are bringing the reader up to date with the fast evolving diagnostics needs. The editors' intent was to keep the on the bottlenecks or challenges when “dealing with the world of real biological measurement – especially from the perspective of a commonly neglected expert: the end user.” I found this to be a thought-provoking book, quite fun to read, with each chapter offering a fresh view of the state of the art and related future challenges for the future of specific chemical sensors and clinical diagnostics.

By "innovations," Worldwatch means agriculture-based methods that have been shown to prevent food waste, help resist climate change, and promote urban farming. The report describes 15 such innovations, all of them environmentally sustainable. As Olivier De Schutter, the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, writes in the introduction, Increasing the production of food and eradicating hunger and malnutrition are two very different objectives—complementary perhaps, but not necessarily linked ... Some clear conclusions are emerging from all this evidence. We need to improve the resilience of countries—particularly poor, net food-importing countires—vis-à-vis increasingly high and volatile prices on the international markets. We...

    I am so pleased that Overstock carries such a wide variety of books! I purchased two Stephen Hawking books (both hardback) for the same amount I would have spent on just one anywhere else. Looking forward to reading this one!
