In Zero, Science Journalist Charles Seife follows this innocent-looking number from its birth as an Eastern philosophical concept to its struggle for acceptance in Europe, its rise and transcendence in the West, and its ever-present threat to modern physics.

Alpha and Omega is a dispatch from the front lines of the cosmological revolution that is being waged at observatories and laboratories around the world-in Europe, in America, and even in Antarctica - where scientists are actually peering into both the cradle of the universe and its grave. Scientists - including galaxy hunters and microwave eavesdroppers, gravity theorists and atom smashers, all of whom are on the trail of dark matter, dark energy, and the growing inhabitants of the particle zoo-now know how the universe will end and are on the brink of understanding its beginning. Their findings will be among the greatest triumphs of science, even towering above the deciphering of the human genome.

With his knack for translating science into understandable, anecdotal prose and his trademark dry humor, award-winning science writer Charles Seife presents the first narrative account of the history of fusion for general readers in more than a decade. Tracing the story from its beginning into the twenty-first century, Sun in a Bottle reveals fusion's explosive role in some of the biggest scientific scandals of all time.

According to MSNBC, having a child makes you stupid. You actually lose IQ points. Good Morning America has announced that natural blondes will be extinct within two hundred years. Pundits estimated that there were more than a million demonstrators at a tea party rally in Washington, D.C., even though roughly sixty thousand were there. Numbers have peculiar powers-they can disarm skeptics, befuddle journalists, and hoodwink the public into believing almost anything.
In 1993, Seife received a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics from Princeton University in New Jersey. In 1995, he received a Master of Science in Mathematics from Yale University in New Haven, and a Master of Science in Journalism from Columbia University in 1996.
After several years of working as a science journalist, author Charles Seife published his critically praised debut book, Zero: The Biography of a Dangerous Idea. He worked as a freelance journalist between 1994 and 1997, writing for a number of distinguished science-oriented periodicals. In 1995, he served as an editorial intern for The Economist, writing articles on a number of wide-ranging topics, including nuclear testing, coyotes, and life in Bosnia. The following year he served in the same capacity for Scientific American.
Before joining the Department of Journalism at New York University, Charles Seife was a writer for Science magazine, specializing in physics and mathematics, and had been a U.S. correspondent for New Scientist.
Seife is also the author of Zero: The Biography of a Dangerous Idea (2000), Alpha & Omega: The Search for the Beginning and End of the Universe (2003), Decoding the Universe: How the New Science of Information Is Explaining Everything in the Cosmos, From Our Brains to Black Holes (2005), Sun in a Bottle: The Strange History of Fusion and the Science of Wishful Thinking (2008), and Proofiness: The Dark Arts of Mathematical Deception (2010).
