Books are some of man’s greatest treasures. And when it comes to those that touch the principles of science and either build upon or bend it to create a captivating experience in the span of a 300-400 pages read, there’s no shortage and any self-declared bibliophile can easily find something that would fit his taste.

This year is no different, with titles exploring everything from the first Apollo moon landing to a life-giving element, charismatic creatures, and even crime-solving spores. Here are some of the best science books of 2019 you can get your hands on:
