Yes, it may have been outdated and shown equations that are today much simpler, though it is very well written, gets to the point quickly and gives origins to MOST systems. I may only be a 6th grader, but I would advise this book to 14 year olds and up. I have difficulty processing the equations into a physical reality, but the literature is fine.

The vast majority of this book deals with outdated physics(Newton, Galileo), very little is actually devoted to Einstein's theories. Very disappointing.
