To view sample chapters and more information visit www.whfreeman.com/SABiologyPreview All of us involved in science education understand the importance of scientific literacy. How do we get the attention of a nonscientist? And if we can get it, how do we keep it - not only for the duration of the course or the chapter in a textbook but beyond? How do we convey in our courses and our textbooks not just what we know but also how science is done? These are the challenges we hope to address with our new series of textbooks specifically for the nonscientist. With this series, W. H. Freeman and Scientific American join forces not just to engage nonscientists but to equip them critical life tools.
