Happy news! My colleague Dr Christophe Fricker's translation into German of Hugh Aldersey-Williams’s Tide (in German Flut) has been shortlisted for the Austrian 'Wissenschaftsbuch des Jahres' or science book of the year award:
Many congratulations to both Christophe and Mr Aldersey-Williams!
The winning books are selected via an open vote, and German speakers please note, anyone can vote at http://www.wissenschaftsbuch.at/ (page is in German). :)
