    Lovely overview of biology books! I saw that someone had compiled a list of the best 5 popular science books on biology in 2011 (http://popsciencebooks.com/best-biology-books/) and I don’t think they are yet on your list. They might be interesting enough to add to your (already) very comprehensive list.
