Physics World has announced it's list of the Top Ten physics books for 2012. Physics on the Fringe is on the list.

Says the magazine's editors:

"Margaret Wertheim’s sociological study of physics crackpots is one of the year’s most thought-provoking books. Well argued and suffused with dry wit, this book asks important questions about what constitutes science and who gets to participate in it."

Please go online here and Vote for the Book to be No. 1. It's up against some awesome competition, including David Kaiser's How the Hippies Saved Physics, a literally fantastical account of a group of San Francisco-based physicists in the 1970's who dropped acid and reconcieved the foundations of quantum science.

Here's the lovely review of Physics on the Fringe that ran in Physics World earlier this year.
