HERE at New Scientist we aim to keep you up to date with the wonderful world of science, from cosmology and quantum physics to evolution and the brain. By necessity we have to be brief: so much to report, so little time.
Now and then it is a pleasure to delve deeper. That is one reason why our CultureLab section exists - to keep track of popular science books and bring the very best to your attention. For bibliophiles, 2011 has been a bumper year, and we'd like to give you an opportunity to fill your shelves with 10 of the best.
We have three sets of the year's best science books to give away, including a signed copy of The Better Angels of Our Nature by Steven Pinker, which explores whether we are truly becoming less violent as a species, and copies of books by Mark Changizi, Richard Dawkins, David Deutsch and Robert Trivers.
Also in the collection is Incognito by David Eagleman, in which he sets out to challenge any "unexamined sense of "I" that enables most of us to believe we are in charge of our senses, our thoughts and feelings" and Richard Fortey's Survivors, which proves a riveting "meander into and out of deep time".
Additional eye-opening works include a tour through multiverses offered up by Brian Greene, Daniel Kahneman's head-scratching insights into our own fallible sense of intuition, and Lisa Randall's insider's guide to modern particle physics.
The competition is open to subscribers and registered users. See the full terms and conditions and go to our competition page for your chance to win a set of all 10 books.
