Today at The Open Notebook, we introduce a new recurring feature, Single Best. We asked top science writers to give us their best advice in one minute or less.
We begin with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Deborah Blum. Blum is the author of five books, most recently the best-seller, The Poisoner’s Handbook: Murder and the Birth of Forensic Medicine in Jazz Age New York. Blum is a science blogger for Wired and is currently working on a book about poisonous food.
