Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-These books follow a standard format with biographical detail of the scientist, a description of his research, and the lasting impact on modern science. They are ideal for short reports as they offer more detailed information than a standard encyclopedia entry and the writing is straightforward and easily understood. The authors do a good job of simplifying complex scientific discoveries and formulae (such as the method of determining a star's distance from the Earth using Cepheid variable stars). In the case of Mendel, however, Hasan seems to be stretching the material to fill the page requirement. The books offer a balanced approach to controversial topics such as Darwin and evolution but also point to instances of scientific consensus as with the Big Bang. Unfortunately, the illustrations are sometimes poorly reproduced and are often of limited interest. Useful for libraries in need of support materials on these individuals.-Cass Kvenild, University of Wyoming, Laramie Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
