70 best science books you need to read in 2021

How do you go about choosing the best science books? It's a bit of an impossible task. So many pass our desks here at BBC Science Focus that we can barely keep up – but we can say with complete confidence that brilliant science books are coming out all the time.

I'm not saying that this is a list of the best science books of all time. What it is, though, is a list of brilliant books that are worth your time. This is far from an exhaustive list. I could keep going, adding more books I've enjoyed from just the last few years, and even more that my colleagues swear by, but I reckon 70 will do for now.

Keep checking back – we'll keep this page updated when we come across a book, old or new, that we think you should read. And, of course, if your favourite book hasn't made the cut, let us know! Send a message on Twitter or Facebook and tell us about the books you love.
