In the tradition of making end-of-the-year lists of the “Top 10 X” I present my personal picks for the Top 10 Science Books of 2010. Most of these books are available in audio format as well as the old-school ink-on-bound-paper format, and I highly recommend Audible.com as the go-to source for easy listening to these selections while driving or riding your bike from your MP3 player or iPhone/iPod (use one ear bud instead of two so you can hear on-coming traffic, ambulances, etc.).In reverse order I give you my Top 10 Science Books of 2010.

This year PLoS ONE had a lot of interesting research covered in the media. In fact, we had over 300 research articles receive substantial coverage from all over the world. So I thought on the eve of the New Year, it might be nice to list a sampling of some of the most widely covered papers. From new dinosaur discoveries to social networks predicting outbreaks, it was hard to choose but I narrowed it down to 25. Starting from the most recently published papers and working backward, here is the list of some of 2010’s most extensively covered papers.

This is the full first year that The Jizo Chronicles has been up and running, so it’s a good time to look back at what’s been going on in the world of socially engaged Buddhism in 2010. (To get an idea of what’s ahead for 2011, look at the Calendar of Events that we maintain here.)
It’s been quite a year, actually.
Ten great studies from 2010 that can improve your life.
The end of 2010 fast approaches, and I'm thrilled to have been asked by the editors of Psychology Today to write about the Top 10 psychology studies of the year. I've focused on studies that I personally feel stand out, not only as examples of great science, but even more importantly, as examples of how the science of psychology can improve our lives.
Each study has a clear "take home" message, offering the reader an insight or a simple strategy they can use to reach their goals, strengthen their relationships, make better decisions, or become happier. If you extract the wisdom from these ten studies and apply them in your own life, 2011 just might be a very good year.
