On the Shelves in Oxford: This week, we’re thinking about science in the Oxford office. We hope you’re not disgusted by Don’t Look, Don’t Touch by Valeria Curtis, which examines the science of revulsion. We talk a lot about love and fear, but disgust is just as important in our daily lives, informing everything we do, from what we touch or eat to what we desire and even how we vote. Then we have Are Dolphins Really Smart? by Justin Gregg, a  critical examination of everything we think we know about the mammals, not to mention the pseudoscience notions that abound them.
