    I think I liked it more than last year's but less then 2018. While the overall quality was consistent, there were few "wow" essays that make me put down the book and just think. Those gems are a reason I love this series and this collection qualifies as "solid". I think I liked it more than last year's but less then 2018.

    Each chapter is a different topic by a different author which made the book more interesting to me. Some topics I found very interesting while others I lost my interest in and would not have read through if they were any longer. Good variety of topics.

    Damn good yearly antho as always: this collection leans towards astronomy, physics, with some good paleontological hits and AI language learning essays as well. All really important pieces to read that will inspire a bunch of sci-fi in my head, but also longform climate journalism I can pursue. I have preferred past years in terms of ToC, but hey, that's the luck of the draw.

    I have read about 4 years of these. A pleasant way to expose myself to a diverse collections of topics in the scientists voice. A deeper unfolding of the theme from a journalist or scientist that is not the short online news article. There are many people tirelessly working to discover our world. These are their stories. This year was more paleontology and seemed less diverse, but still a good way to catch up.

    An excellent collection of science and nature shorts. I enjoyed them all except the one about the Paradise fire - which was long and seemed out of place in the collection.
