Producer Jeremy Grange stands in for a poorly Adam Walton this week. Jeremy is joined by biochemist Dr. Anna Croft from Bangor University; Dr. Jana Horak, Head of Mineralogy and Petrology at the National Museum Wales and computer scientist Dr. Tom Crick from Cardiff Metropolitan University as they discuss their favourite science books.

Jana selects The Dating Game: One Man's Search for the Age of the Earth by Cherry Lewis(Cambridge University Press);
Tom chooses a graphic novel about the life of the Welsh philosopher and mathematician Bertrand Russell. It's called Logicomix - An Epic Search for Truth by Apostolos Doxiadis and Christos Papadimitriou (Bloomsbury)
