Royal Society Insight Investment Science Book Prize

Shortlist 2019

Find out more about the 2019 Royal Society Insight Investment Book Prize.

Since 1988, the Royal Society has celebrated outstanding popular science writing and authors. Over the decades, the Prize has celebrated some notable winners including Bill Bryson and Stephen Hawking, and most recently Professor Sarah-Jayne Blakemore for her insight into how the adolescent brain develops.

Each year our panel of expert judges, comprising eminent scientists, authors, journalists and broadcasters, choose the book that they believe makes popular science writing compelling and accessible to the public.
