    1. I found this book in the science section of a used book store It has a sort of paper cover, and it s from 1988 Although it s a Princeton University Press book, it has the feel of a handsomely bound dissertation or mimeograph I felt like I had found a treasure when I stumbled on it This is exactly why I used to prowl through the science section of used book stores hunting for books that I wouldn t normally know about They stock the kinds of science books that were hot 10 30 years ago, and which a [...]
