However, I recommend the Kindle ebook. The ebook works great on any device and provides additional features like bookmarks, highlights etc.:

 

It is also available in paperback:

    • It might very well be that the principles of science are well known and understood by many. All the technology we enjoy proves that it is.

      However, there are a few problems as I see it.

      The first problem is that the principles of science are not well-defined and readily available. There is no standard. This is also noted by National Academy of Sciences.

      “The basic and particular principles that guide scientific research practices exist primarily in an unwritten code of ethics. Although some have proposed that these principles should be written down and formalised, the principles and traditions of science are, for the most part, conveyed to successive generations of scientists through example, discussion, and informal education.”
      – Ref.: Responsible Science, Volume I: Ensuring the Integrity of the Research Process; Panel on Scientific Responsibility and the Conduct of Research

      I think that observation is correct. At least, I have not been able to find a well-defined set of principles.
