The contenders for the Samuel Johnson prize in non-fiction are announced.

http://www.guardian....prize-shortlist

A strong scientific flavour dominates this year's candidates for the UK's most prestigious non-fiction award, with Holmes's historical take joined by Guardian journalist Ben Goldacre's dismantling of pseudo-science, Steve Jones's look at Charles Darwin's lesser-known writings, and Manjit Kumar's history of quantum theory and the conflict between Einstein and Bohr over the nature of reality. Patricia Fara also makes the running with a 4,000-year history of science, while scientist Elizabeth Pisani is in contention for The Wisdom of Whores, an insider's view of the 10 years she spent working in the Aids industry.
